Warning PLEASE READ... SPAM EMAIL ALERT

URGENT PLEASE READ
I have just had an email from who I thought was friend and it turns out that it was a SPAM email using their address.  I was not able to open it as my interent protection stopped it.  However it has gone through my email address book and sent the spam email on.  So if you have recieved an email with my name just before this one today then DO NOT OPEN IT!!!!!

I have sent an email to my whole address book asking them not to open it and thought I would put it here too.
I am so sorry but came with a friend's email address and did not look suspicous at all.  It does not appear to have damaged my laptop at all ( I am using it now) but it has upset me to think I could cause anyone else any problems.  I have also informed my friend whose email address was used.  I just hope I do not have any complaints from Exeter Uni on Monday!!

So sorry and I wish this kind of abuse of the internet could be stopped.

A similar thing happened to me recently but as far as I could tell no-one from my address book was contacted. I wish I knew what drives people to do that kind of thing!

I have had many bounce back and a few giving out of office replies, it is those ones that i hope do not open it on Monday.

I got the email but yours arrived too so, when I read the subject line, I deleted both.
Thank you for reacting so quickly.

Funny you should post this. I got one from my daughter-in-law using an older email address of hers. I need to check with her on that one. But it was suspicious too.
