IGNORE EMAIL offering nice stuff for free. That's my advice and I follow it. Today, I'm ignoring a promo that offers me free flights anywhere in the world through Southwest Airlines. The email promo explains that all I have to do is prove I have AIDS, herpes or a festering infection. By proving I have a STD, I get a $10,000 gift voucher that can be used anywhere in the world. The only problem is that when I follow a legitimate-looking link, I will infect my computer with malware.
So I ignore this email because it offered me something for free. And I've also modified my list of blocked phrases to ensure the phrase "fly free" goes directly into the bin.
I won't provide a link to either the sender or the malware URL.
