And so on and so forth.
I received it 33 times (so far).
Um... SPAM, anyone? (grin)
I started to wonder if it was a joke or something, so I called the support line and got an electronic message that confirmed they're 'working on' the issue. That's just too funny...
Well, at least this explains why my internet connection was down for hours yesterday!
I have to be honest -- I didn't really need more spam support. I get very, very little spam to my inbox. But whatever!
