Email from dead person

Email from dead person

I have now received two emails from a person who died more than two years ago.  I have not opened the email.  What should I do with this email.  Email is from Pat Wetmore.  The two emails are in my inbox.

Re: Email from dead person

It sounds like the email address of the sender has been "spoofed".  Spammers can make emails look like they are coming from someone when in fact they are not.  It is pretty easy for them to do.  I would just delete them.  Was/is that address in your address book?  If so, your account may have been compromised.  Change your password and run a scan of your system with your A/V software.
