Does anyone know why I am getting emails from Tim Matejka and alaska act? I know Tim passed on a few years back regretfully, yet every once in a while I get an email from his (or a clone) address and today I followed the link out of curiosity and a download started automatically. I was able to shut it down fast enough that it did not load anything onto my hard drive. but does any one know anything about this? No disrespect intended to Tim's family, The one time we emailed back and forth, he shared some good secrets about Blackwell. That was just months before he passed away, he was a real nice guy.
just wondering what the deal with the email is, thanks.

-Simon

Uh hmmm I don't know why you would be getting any emails from Tim or his family. I am going to see his parents tomorrow I'll ask if they have been using it but I just don't see it. Could it be some sort of email (ad) that is just using his name?

Shoot me a PM with the email address you are getting and I'll check it out.

I'm guessing the address book was hijacked. Is it a comcast account? I know three people who had their comcast address book hijacked and had to have comcast reassign a new user name to stop the spamming.

Check the message headers and most likely it will be a hijacked computer overseas somewhere that is doing the sending.
