    Question



  • Guys I always thought I was reasonably inteeligent, worldy, street smart....Not a gullible fool but yesterday I received this unsolicited and well frankly I have no idea

    I even tried to write the sender but No Answer.

  • That is a scam and you left this in a forum about the blogging software Windows Live Writer. Nobody here can help you with your Hotmail problem.
