I have just received 4 e-mails from (supposedly)
As I have not ordered anything it was easy to recognise them as spam and possibly nasty, so Gransnetters, I just thought I would let you all know.

Thank you, Grandmanorm. I'll keep a watchful eye....!

Thank you. That is a difficult one for me as I have ordered 2 items from Amazon and I am keeping an eye out for delivery dates. I will be extra vigilant.

Yes - I got it too in my spam folder. IF I had ordered anything I may well have opened it as it did look OK. Deleted without opening as I do for all the viagra ads !

Just been in to my spam folder and what a load of c**p there. Yes, several from 'Amazon' but genuine Amazon orders, of which I have three pending, come to my infolder not spam. Loads from 'Gucci' and what appears to be twenty plus telling me they've successfully transferred thousands of pounds to my various bank accounts!!! My favourite is one asking me to pose for some 'Hot Russian Pussy' grin. My server allows me to read the first few lines without actually opening any.
