    I do have protection, but possibly not up-to-date enough. That seems to be a
    day-to-day project these days. Macs are fairly bullet proof as the $%%&*
    that design this stuff go after the 90%+ community (Microsoft), so I perhaps
    tend to be a bit more lax than I should be.  Outside of e-mail, I
    sneaker-net files with other professionals, but have been bitten on occasion
    even then.
    As to fraud, Alex and I live in the same city, and do face-to-face cel nav
    on a semi-regular basis, so not clear what scam or fraud is likely in this
    I do appreciate your warning/concern.  If you have more information about
    the reason for the alert, or the meaning of "spoofed" I would appreciate
    knowing/learning the details.
    Thank you very much,
