I too have had a couple of these and been in touch with Michael about it.  I have suggested that he try changing his password as a first step.  We have to leave it to him to resolve - just ignore these messages and do not follow any links.

Yes, though not from him. It is a spam related thing that uses your email account to send spam to people you have contacted. Best to get a new email address. There probably wont be any virus on your computer - just in your email account.

Hacked Email??
« Reply #1 on: June 13, 2019, 07:05:51 AM »
Hi All.
I've had an Email from Michael Jennings, or not.
In the preview header there is an Email that says it's from Michael, but it says the message is empty.
When I opened the Email there was nothing in the message frame except for

(message clipped) click to open full message

I opened this and was taken to a site that looks like a BT site and was prompted to enter my password..
I thought this was dodgy so i deleted the message and sent Michael an Email asking if he had sent me a message.
I got the same thing back this morning. i also then noticed that the second window that opened had ''BT sham'' in the window tab..
Has anyone else had this?
