Thanks-- I did find out my membership has run out and I will send in my
renewal--but I was not used to getting an online notice from NAFEX--new!

Yes, it is so important to be very careful.. I simply delete anything that
looks remotely suspicious and if a friend has sent it, I sent them a
separate email to find out if they in fact did send the questionable

Gmail has a good use.

It could have been from NAFEX itself but would absolutely not be a
system message from the list; once subscribed, always subscribed until
you leave the list. I would be very wary of suspicious messages these
days and do not click on any link contain in them unless you are 100%
sure that is it from a recognized and trusted source; of course hacked
accounts using people's email addressbooks to propagate viruses into
lists and to individuals is common these days. The virus containing
lists in hacked email is usually pretty easy to spot. I highly recommend
using GMail and Thunderbird for email. If, GMail, then nothing is on
your home computer.
