I've not seen this one before, received this morning, but not dowloaded.

That is not all of it, I dumped some coded stuff that might have been a problem.

Tripod.com seems to be a legit site, but the last line is a dead giveaway.


Cheers

They aren't even trying :lol:

Pretty sure a real "mailbox is full" message would come as a popup in the email client and not an actual email.

Total scam.

Tripod is a legit site but it is a free webhosting site, so scammers love it!
