Now I can understand some silly spam/hoax crap but I have no idea what Gerli (*The Time Guardian*) has to do with all this. As far as I am aware I haven't got any viruses.

Can anyone shed some light on this or has received it themselves? I realise that it definitely is spam because not only do I live in New Zealand, even I know that the correct term is 'indicted' not 'indicated'! I was just wondering what the point of it was. Some pop up also came but I didn't want to download and run said file.

Had you written a mail to Gerli, then?

because a worm tries to send itself to email addresses stored on the victims computer. Your inbox was full, thats why your name appeared

so, I have a worm? I don't think so, I'm very careful.
I'm no closer to solving the mystery...although as yet I haven't been 'indicated'!
And no, I never sent anything to Gerli.
