More Scammer/Hijacked E-mails...

Boy, the audacity and nerve of some people!

Awhile back, I mentioned that someone had hijacked A. J. Lindsey's e-mail address and used it to try and get me to click on a link...and I warned you about this, dear visitor.  Not only that, but several of my Ham radio friends have had their's hijacked in the same fact, I got an e-mail, appearing to have come from myself telling me to click on a link- I deleted it ASAP... they've gone and hijacked Matt White's e-mail ("Sonny Martin III") and sent me a wierd link today.  I wrote to Sonny and asked him...he confirmed that it wasn't him and I thanked him.

Greatgooglymoogly!  Be careful about duplicated e-mails...they're scams.  We all have to be vigilant so that we don't get unwanted solicitations and viruses from these hijacked e-mail addresses and the links they support.  And, you run the risk of, when you dump them into the "junk file", maybe not ever hearing from the legitimate e-mail holder again, if your computer program weeds them out from here on out.

Anyone got any ideas about this?  Anyone been seriously affected by something such as this?
