No! It even said to view payment details and I didn’t even open that

Since you do not use paypal no need to open anything in that email.

Just delete it also as a safety measure change your yahoo email password.Are you clear?

Is there anything else you like to know ?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
