Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

Please ignore and delete these types of emails as they come - they are sent out by bogus third-party services, providing "free" software that come bundled with malware and other threats.

Webroot automatically scans any attachments that you download from your emails, and if you want to use a trusted, free anti-spam software as well, you may download MailWasher from here:
