I just got an email for a bitcoin mining accelerator beta the exact text in the subject is:

Peter - Bitcoin Mining Accelerator Team         Bitcoin Mining Accelerator - Beta Invite

Is this legit or a phishing scam or trojan etc..., I don't dare open the email on any computer related to bitcoin.

Just a heads up to everyone to think twice about opening a bitcoin related email, especially from a stranger.
