    Suspicious email

    I just received an email from vacations by Aruba claiming to be from my favorite Aruba website. It says, see my Aruba photos. Send me your favorite photos. It is signed from Angelo Limon. Any one know if it is legit? I did not open it yet. It does not name my favorite Aruba web site.

    I have seen him post on some of the Facebook groups (if it's the same person). I wouldn't click on attachments you didn't request, but if you are on Facebook this may be how your contact info was obtained.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!

    My grandson opened a facebook page for me. I use it a little. Is there anyone that doesn't have a facebook page? I will send it to spam.

    Actually... I don't use Facebook... And my career is in technology so take that for what it's worth. A little mystery is prudent IMO.

    I know who he is, but do not know him personally. Was supposed to meet him on the last trip but vacation got in the way. My take is he is well intentioned but perhaps overly enthusiastic at times. To me, unsolicited email advertising is a big no-no... and I think actually illegal.

    He asked to me to be a "friend" on FB. I declined.
