    Spam?


    Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 and started using Windows Mail for Windows 10, and quit using Yahoo! through Internet Explorer... I keep getting this email. Is this spam or is this true?

    Hello Jesse,

    Please do not click on that attachment. This is most likely malware and a phishing scheme.

    Jesse, I'm glad you didn't click on the link in the email. A good rule of thumb is "Never click on a link in a email if you are not sure it is legitimate" I won't even click on a link from someone I know unless they tell me they actually sent it to me. As you already know, Any time your not sure you can come here and ask. :)
