suspect e-mail from bobbykat



I got an e-mail, purportedly from bobbykat, with a link in it. The return address in the e-mail is ****@methodist.org.uk . Bobbykat does not live in the UK, so I am suspicious that the e-mail is a trick to get me to click on the link therein (I have not done so).

What do you think?

I could post the link, if you wish

I have not been in touch with bobbykat for a few years.

I will probably send her an e-mail about this if I still have her e-mail address. But, I thought it might be of some interest for discussion here at KF.

Notice I have not quoted words from the e-mail, which I think is against KF rules.

Try replying to the email asking a question only Bobbykat would know the answer to.

Sounds like spam.
I get similar emails too, I've never opened it (Gmail sends it to spam folder, but I can see the first line). The messages goes something like this:

Hi Quaver http://www.???????????? Thank you!

Someone probably got the email address from somewhere, and are sending spam with my friend's from address.

Unless, that is, it has a proper message.
