traveler24: DO NOT OPEN!

This has already been answered by Katie, the Fodor's editor, on the Lounge forum.

This is NOT from Fodors. NOT. NOT.

Thanks for the quick responses--
I hate these trick emails...
For a long time i received these from "eBay" -- people were going to sue me, my order was defective etc.
I have never been an eBay customer so I was not bothered but the Fodors one really worried me..Thanks to your help I did NOT fall for it...

Oops sorry, turns out it is generated from Fodor's but by mistake. Instructions are the same: delete, ignore.
