Thread: we are suing you

    we are suing you

    Got this email in my gmail account yesterday..."We are suing you"

    Had to do with uploading a virus attachment to an email.
    After a little googling, found out that google checks all attachments for virus' and will not send them.
    Searched mor for this header..."We are suing you", and found nothing. I think it is a scam???

    Most likely a scam. Still, I'd check the sender, it is hard to judge just by your quote

    WHO is suing? Google does not send such notices and cannot sue even if you did send a virus. The intentional sending of viruses is not a civil offense anyway, which is where lawsuits occur, in civil court. Criminal courts is where Internet crime is handled and there are no suits issued by DoJ or States Attorneys.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.

    We have a big spam filtering appliance we built, and use to "clean" the e-mail for many of our clients. The quarantine is filling up with lots of e-mails with the subject line "We are going to sue you"...coming from many different domains..some fake, some real.

    It's a fairly new widespread spam e-mail that leads you to sites infested with malware if you click on them....

    You can see many other people are getting this same junk...
