Different virus approach

just a very brief warning here. I got an e-mail which opened OK and the person said he had my e-mail address on his account.

They said that they had got a number of my e-mails sent to them in error by my ISP. Further they said that they had put them into ZIP files. When I went to WinZip, I got all sorts of warnings. I think this is the next step in spreading viruses. I just deleted it.

It started off by apologising for their bad English.
I hope this warning helps others on the board, I think this is the next step in spreading viruses because the actual message had no virus that opened immediately as they quite often do. I looked at its properties carefully before I even opened the message. It's a different approach

It comes down to the basic advice: never open an attachment from someone unless you are expecting it.
