Yeah, we've had a lot here today. Manning the helpdesk is a hoot.

Caller: "I've had an email from Amazon, but I've not bought anything and don't use my work email for Amazon".

Delete it then muppet. Do you reply to every piece of junk mail the postman sends? "Dear Everest, thank you for your lovely detailed brochure on double glazing, but unfortunately I have no need for new windows at the moment".

Yeah I got it too, I got two in fact, one directly to me, another copying in a whole host of other people. I get emails from various banks including my own inviting me to do stuff I wouldn't do. You just have to be savvy to it.
