    I have come to the realization that you must NEVER sign in to view anything that you receive, unless you have instigated the e mail communication or you know that it is coming to you. There are way too many e mail scams that come in from supposed banks, insurance companies, world trade centre etc etc. The most scariest are the supposed e mails that come from banks !!

    If they had uploaded the document to Google docs, why does the link go to plasticoslosprados.cl?

    The first time I got one of those spam emails saying "view this doc I uploaded at Google docs for you", my first thought was what an elegant way to send spam and get past spam filters. But obviously it's more sinister than that if they're getting you to log in too...

    And the consequences could be pretty severe too when Google blocks your profile as a spammer, because most often your profile is connected to a lot more than just your Gmail account.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Yep received a number of those. Fortunately I am very close to my email web service, and pop in regularly to do clean ups. But for unsuspecting users, this can be a problem.
