Sooooooo... what's in the attachment? Tongue

If you aren't the sole controller of your private keys, you don't have any bitcoins.

I don't know. Anyway, Gmail doesn't display attachments like that. I'm assuming it's a virus, so I'm not clicking on it.

I wonder if the spam was targeted, as the number of people with a bitcoin wallet is still relatively small.  Do you use that email address on any bitcoin related sites?

It's my primary email, so yes.

The best spam I got was from (what I figure to be) a Nigerian who made his e-mail body look so much like an official PayPal security communication that I almost believed it.

Kudos to him!

Just right click it, copy the link and use https://www.virustotal.com/ url scanner. That way if they are using a FUD Virus(Fully Undetectable) it will get some attention from antivirus companies and make it detectable.
