    I received this email earlier today. I don't know anything about him and I don't know why he's telling me I need an attorney. I haven't sold any of my pictures or taken any without consent outside of public areas. This guy is scaring me. What could it be about?

    Doesn't sound like the kind of thing I would reply to. I'd probably SPAM flag something like this if I received it.


    "Hey it's really important! But I won't tell you who I am or what it's about"... what? dude doesn't even say who he is when you ask...

    Sounds fishy. Tell him if it's a legal matter to have his lawyer contact you, rather than him.

    Yup. My dad cooked Spam 3 meals a week when I was a kid. I can't stand the stuff, but I can recognize the smell of it anywhere, and that's definitely SPAM...

    If someone feels they need to expicitly state an eMail is "not spam" it's spam. Pretty hilarious IMO

    Looks like BS to me. Spam and delete it. Don't respond to it.

    Sounds legit, you better get an attorney. Or, you could spam the living crap out of him right back. Send his own name to him about 5 million times and lock out his phone.
