Possible fraud - McAfee account expired.

I have been getting emails in my ntlworld account saying that my McAffee anti-virus account is about to expire. This looks like a scam - I have never had such an account and the source of the messages looks suspicious.

It is spam. Look at the numerous threads on this forum about spam and you will see there has been a recent outbreak of 'McAfee' renewal e-mails scams. There seems no answer to stopping it and VM monitors tell you to adjust your filters in webmail. Unfortunately, they don't work very efficiently.

We would recommend updating your spam settings on your account as this can help manage and minimise the amount of spam you receive.

Thanks Nat,

I can easily ignore emails like this but I will update my spam settings as you suggest.
