This scammy ass email somehow just made it past all filters and into my inbox. Just an FYI. It looks scammy as fuck, from a UK email address then with a Santa Barbara, CA address at the bottom? I wouldn't recommend clicking any links in an email like this.

"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." – T.S. Eliot

"The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." - St. George Tucker

A careful definition of words would destroy half the agenda of the political left and scrutinizing evidence would destroy the other half. - Thomas Sowell

"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow...

For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding." - Jeff Snyder

Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys. It realizes the ancient dream of the Jovian thunderbolt, and as such it is the embodiment of personal power. For this reason it exercises a curious influence over the minds of most men, and in its best examples it constitutes an object of affection unmatched by any other inanimate object.

You don't need to go to Law School to understand the constitutional implications of that.

I got the same email, also got through all my filters, reported it as spam to Gmail (as should anyone else who gets this, report it to your ISP).

Don't click on links if you don't know who it's from and can tell the difference between a legit link and SPAM, or have the expertise to first analyze the link.

Had a client who received an email that said he had a voice mail.
Clicked on it, and half an hour had a desktop that said all of his files were encrypted and he had to pay to recover them.
Cryptolocker clone.

I have done 100% recovery from some versions of Crypolocker and others, but it's a lot cheaper to watch what you click instead of paying for recovery.

What Guntrader said.

I've had a PC since 1991 and never a virus or successful scam. I am even wary of relative's links they send me.

"That young man didn't have to die today. He didn't have to lose his life, but he made a bad decision and he did. This isn't a game. This isn't live-action ‘Grand Theft Auto. You don't re-spawn after you're dead."

This is one of those things that if you didn't sign up for it (like through the sheriff's department or one of the credit monitoring agencies... there are probably others but I've personal experience with those two sources) I'd assume it was a scam from the beginning. Even if that one itself doesn't have anything it may have a read request which would show that it's a valid email so worth using in the future.
