Is this shared file spam or not?

New member | Level 2

I received an email from Dropbox informing me that a Shaun Steffen had sent me a file on Dropbox... the email also had an icon I could click to view the file. I opened up Dropbox myself but i can't see any notification that I've been sent something from someone.... is the email I received from Dropbox or is it spam?

Hi @antay, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Just to clarify, do you know who this person is, or not? If you don't know who they are, then there is a possibility that the file contains malware which could affect the files on your computer if downloaded to your machine.

 

You should be able to locate the invite to the file on this page. You can also remove your access to the file to prevent seeing it, or being able to access it again.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
