got a bill from norton

ok today i get 2 emails for quickbooks telling me i'm being billed for  Norton LifeLock  $385.88  Virus Protection Norton 360 - 2022 Edition

$385.88  i'm going to assume this is a fishing email as i do not nor ever had Norton for Lifelock or antivirus programming. i'm on this forum since 2008 when i was following kim komando. today i visit her site to check on something and now i get billed for this. and the contact is a gmail address.

Norton Inc

50 Ellis Street Mountain View, CA 94043 US

(720) 316-0359

letikanerlsa843@gmail.com

so i figure if this was a real norton employee they would have a norton type email address.

so is this what i can expect to get when i visit the komando website?  i do not use QuickBooks and my credit card lets me know when there is even a 1% change on it so i'm sure this is fake but maybe you guys can figure it out and stop the email so others will not get hooked.

Re: got a bill from norton

ok thanks i kind of figured it was, and the sender wanted me to either click on a link or reply to the email to scam me. being i did not ever have any norton products i was wondering why i would have got this. plus i just visited the kim komando website after maybe 5 years an not going there and about a soon as i got off the site looking up things she was saying to do with win 10 and win 10 said not to do them so i left the website and then i get 2 of these emails. so thanks for the help
