    I got the same. I opened the HTM file. It was just an image tag and it didn’t do anything so I don’t understand.

    We’ve been inundated with these the last week or so. Here’s the best explanation I’ve seen:

    *It’s a Bitcoin scam. The .htm file redirects via embedded JavaScript to a website that poses as some kind of scheme by Elon Musk. You’re shown a bunch of fake people each sending you 0.01 BTC, until you have a little over 0.5, and then you’re told to send your own 0.01 BTC to a “random” recipient.*

    They sent it to 6 million people and 20% of them will be posting it here every day for the next few months.

    I’ve gotten a shit tone of those emails too from various users in the past like, 2 days. They all have like 10 or so other emails cc’d that I don’t recognize, but look legit. It’s actually why I came to this sub to begin with cause I wanted to see if I was the only one lol
