    I've had this happen to me before.... they were people telling me to come see their sex cam and it's free... but it's a bot. and that's all [​IMG]

    But... weird.

    I suggest if you don't know them just decline

    Hey Rozalin, long time no see chat.

    Looks like a a bot to me. Although a Google search won't help because the bot probably randomizes the email names to sound like real people.

    Definitely bots, it's very rare for people to use part of their name in an email unless it ties into another word, e.g. tominator or the names are seprated e.g adam.smith or adam_smith or followed by numbers, e.g adamsmith123 etc, etc.
    Laptop screen? It's hard to diagnose it over the internet so I'd say take it to a repair shop. I've had a couple come in and more often than not it was a ribbon cable fault.
