I just got a suspicious looking email claiming to be from Bass Pro Shops. It promised a $50 gift card.

The logo didn't look right so I went to Bass Pro Shop's website and indeed the logo was very different. The real one had much more detail.

ERGO, if you get the email don't open it.

That is all.

Hope you didn't supply them with any Bass Pro user ID's or Passwords/Credit card numbers.

I've been getting them lately. Walmart, Home Depot, Walgreens. They all look alike when you open them.

Don't open any of them, they generally have spyware & possibly RANSOMWARE in them!!

I got one for an Amazon Gift card if I removed a negative review.
