  1. Emails I get from all over, have NO recognizable pattern(s)

    eg… kdn8u 5d4fi5 mjsocd d9b6bv… and etc

    I am loathe to ‘reply’, to request my address be removed in case that leads to problems.
    Any suggestions out there?

    • Those emails should be deleted. The basic rule is to not open, or click inside of, any email from someone you do not know or recognize the email address. On the chance that it came from an address you know let the person know that they either have a virus, malware, or compromised email account.

      Remember to never send your personal information through email, or over the phone.
