Never open an email if you don't recognize the address of the sender. It could be a big ol' nasty virus. Also, people don't just give you stuff. Delete the email and have your anti-virus do a complete scan. Also, it doesn't matter what the subject line says.

When it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Never open any suspicious mail. The sender's email is not even convincing, some can even fake a Yahoo address.
