Grammabear, who was the spam from? Amazon???

Barb, No it wasn't from Amazon.  It was an unsolicited blackmail email from Tracie - I don't know anyone with this name.  He/she demanded a sizeable amount of money or they would send porno videos of me to everyone on my contact list.  I printed a copy of the email and then deleted it from my SPAM folder.

Never heard of such threatening emails. I’ve heard of fraudulent emails offering large sums of money, but never this.

Wow Grammabear, that is really scary!!

Like you I have no porno videos anywhere, that is quite a scam. Only photos around of me are before my double mastectomy and I really doubt anyone has access to them.

If only these 'crooks' would spend their time in a more creative manner instead of doing stupid stuff like this blackmail email.

Maybe, you should have kept the email archived. It has a lot of trace elements.
