Naiveté!

Hate to make this post because it betrays both my wholesale ignorance and stupendous innocence. I take no notice of the numerous “mail delivery failed” emails that arrive and for which I simply press “delete.” In an idle moment today, or by accident, I clicked the read icon, and then puzzled through the email. It was 14 pages of gibberish, except for the address section at the top. What was being returned was an email from my very private address that I had sent to aprasad.ahd@omamconsultants.com. Omamconsultants may well be legit; on the other hand, they may be planning to destroy the world … and have hijacked my email address as part of the convoluted process.

There’s not a damn thing I can do, as far as I know, but it did send literal chills up & down my back …
