    I hope this is the right place to post this, if wrong, mods please move.

    I've had 4 e-mails to one of my legitimate e-mail addresses that all contain a string
    http://www.google.com/url?q=']www.google.com/url? plus a DropBox address.
    They all purport to be related to purchases for thousands of $ and offer a link to get more information.

    Two were on the 20th, two on the 21st.

    I don't use Preview and I didn't open them, I just viewed the Message Source.

    I haven't created any new accounts using that address but of course the address may have been 'harvested' recently. I do have one account at Home Depot that uses that address but nothings been charged to it (yet?).
