We received an email from a reader indicating that he has received several suspicious emails purporting to be from his ISP.  The emails indicate that his email space is running out and tells him to click on the link to increase the space.  Of course, the email is another example of social engineering attempts in email. I am wondering how many others are receiving this email and how wide spread it is.  Please let us know if you have seen these emails.
