Electronic Greeting Cards

December 13, 2008
Tis the season to send and receive greeting cards. Some people are starting to send e-cards instead of paper ones. We thought it would be a good time to remind you to be careful when you receive a greeting card notification in your e-mail because it could be a trick.
Make sure the e-mail says the first and last name someone you know. If it is generic, don’t open it. For example, if it says you have received a greeting card from a friend. Don’t open it. If it says you have received a greeting card from Fred, don’t open it. These types of e-mails may contain attachments that are infections or links to websites with infections and your computer could become infected.
Conversly, whenever you send an e-card, make sure you use your first and last name so the person on the receiving end of the greeting card knows it’s from you.
