Notice the poor English, the fact that some of the spacing between words is two or three spaces (not a very professional look but designed to get through Spam filters), and there was an attached .zip file. Zip files are a normal way of sending attachments, but I bet that inside this one there is an .exe or some other executable file that would infect my computer. Yahoo would never send me an e-mail with an attachment, nor would any other reputable company.

Here is the file. Your_text.pif your_text.eml
In this e-mail the subject was Re: Setup, again trying to make we think I've had correspondence with the person, or perhaps, that I've gotten an e-mail meant for someone else who is getting a great deal on a home loan. Also note the spelling irregularities of r\ate, l o an, and r a te s. These are examples of how the spammer is trying to fool the Spam filters. The link is actually to a website. I have never known anyone named Dewitt.
The screen shot below is from my Junk mail folder. Everything you see listed is Spam. One, however, came from a legitimate e-mail address. I contacted the person at that address because I knew him and am on his e-mail list. I was afraid that his computer had a virus. He told me it was just someone using his legitimate e-mail address to try and fool people. Fortunately, between my two Spam filters it was caught and I only accidentally discovered it later.
