Beware-nctv users

THERE IS A SCAM E-MAIL ASKING FOR YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS.
I called Northland Cable to confirm. It is definitely SPAM

Aren't they asking for something that they already have? Not sure, but that might be clue #1.

I don't like long-winded posts; You have three options, call Northland Cable, trust my warning or go ahead and open the e-mail.

If they sent you the email, they already have your email. I would bet that it's some sort of phishing attempt or something, possibly a rootkit or worse.

Of course they have an e-mail address obtained by illegal means. Once you open it, you have confirmed it , along with dire consequences.
Northland can explain it much better than I.
To those of you who find my post so amusing, please open it if you get an e-mail!
