I sometimes do. Sometimes it is an actual email from a friend, and they just didn't bother putting a title in the subject line. I just stick to the rule of not clicking on links in an email unless I am certain it is from a friend (even if it comes from a friends's email address), and disregarding any content I know that actual friend would never send.

My account was hacked into a while back and in the subject line it said, "Hello" or "Hi", so everyone it was sent to, got a strange link from me.......my oldest replied back to me and said, "Why in the world would you send this to me?" Some of the people in my contact list opened it and it was a virus.....I let everyone know I had been hacked and that if they get an email from me and ALL addresses are in the "To" line , it did not come from me....if I send an email to everyone, I use the "Bcc" line so no one else gets the addresses.....So...no matter what, always be careful before clicking a link you don't recognize.... scratchead

My account was also hacked some time ago and not only my friends would get mails supposedly by me, but I've got some untitled messages from supposedly friends of mine . I've also received messages from Argentine and French friends...but titled in English, so they obviously didn't belonged to them.

But the worse was when I received a message from a friend and had a pornopgraphic link in it... Yikes

So, the only thing I could recommand to you is...be careful!

I'd send them an e-mail and ask them if they sent me something with a link in it.
If I ever send anyone anything with a link, I'll write something along with it letting the person know I sent it to them and it isn't a virus or that someone hacked into my account.

When I send something to other persons, I always writes something to tell them what I'm talking about and what the LINK is about. So, if they don't see this explanation in a mail supposed by me...It isn't by me at all.

And no, after what happened to me with the porno link I didn't clicked in anything I'm not sure what is it... scared
