I wasn't born yesterday
this mail i recieved has nothing to do with what you just posted, this guy got an E-mail from me asking how to listen to him. i didn't send it and it had an attachment with a virus.
he just replied with how to listen to him.
my e-mail adress was found on another computer in the adress book -the other computer most likely has no good protection against spyware that harvest adresses
