Unknown email contact


Whenever I type a new email and type my name into the "To" section, a drop down list of few contacts drops down. I'd expect that it pulls similar looking contacts from my contacts list.

However this list has an unknown email address which I have never used, never saved on my contacts list, nor recognise.

I can't find where this is coming from and is not in my contacts list. Perhaps it is a virus?

Anyone had a similar issue?

What should I do?

Re: Unknown email contact

Hey abbud, I can't exactly say it's a virus but it's possible that someone else has used your device to send mails to those contacts. I can't say much about this but to suggest a wipe. Goodluck.
