Simon Ashton hoax (?)

  prester-john 22:38 29 Mar 2009

I've had an email warning me against opening anything received from one 'Simon Ashton', with the request to pass the message on to all my friends. It looks to have all the hallmarks of a hoax.

Anyone know anything more definite?

Why would you want to open an e-mail out of the blue from a total stranger anyway?

It's surely suspicious by its very nature.

I would never open any unexpected mails anyway.

Thank you for all replies received, specially the 'Click-here's. I've passed them on to the person (whom I know) who "warned" me.

And No, I don't open unexpected mails from strangers either, but too many people do. It helps keep viruses in circulation.
