Sorry for just getting around to assisting you as we have a high volume of customers online.

Your daughter is correct. Do not open any of those messages since you know that you did not make any purchases. These types of emails are referred to as phishing emails where unscrupulous persons try to gain access to your personal information when you click on a link in the message in order to steal your identity. In addition, the email may contain coding that, once opened, automatically sends out messages to people on your contact list, making it appear as if you are the one sending them the messages. These types of messages can be harassment messages or messages that appear as if you are requesting financial help and they should click a link to help you out.

Simply delete such messages and ignore them totally. If you are concerned that you may have been charged for a purchase that you did not make, please call your financial institution and have them check to see if any payments were recently made that you do not know of. If you have online banking, you can also access your account and check your online credit card statement to see if anything looks suspicious.

I hope that my answer has been helpful. If so, please select 3, 4, or 5 stars and click the Submit button so that I can be paid for helping you because we do not get paid automatically.
Thanks for using JustAnswer and have a lovely day.
