Re: document sent to my email via Dropbox

Hi there, this is generally a phishing email, since there isn’t an option for a 7 day link with Dropbox. The wording also doesn't match what we send users.
There is a small possibility that you recently purchased a digital product, and that company is sending you the information this way, and will remove the files after 7 days, and this is their email you're getting.
Could you check the sender of the email and see if it comes from one of our official domains?
Since you've already clicked the link, I'd also recommend a full virus scan of your computer, just in case.
Keep me posted!
