New Email Tricks/Scams/Viruses

by Patrick Rardin in Technology

A new and even trickier email scam seems to be traveling around these days so please be cautious and alert. Whenever Fall seems to be arriving, the increase in these types of deceptions resurge. As always keep alert for so-called package tracking tricks allegedly from shippers’ with an attachment or otherwise.

The latest round carries a note which includes your legitimate web address or email address, making it seem really authentic. Here are some samples of the types of wording you might see:

1): A Package For You

2): Tracking information on your gift

3): Official looking Microsoft Email telling you there are issues with your email acount

You may receive either of these types of messages or something with slightly different wording. PLEASE DO NOT click on the links in these messages. DELETE the message immediately. If you have any question regarding the nature of these emails PLEASE contact us here at Eagle Feather Enterprises.

It is important to note that neither Eagle Feather Enterprises, nor any of your web design associates, web hosting providers, or email hosting providers would send out an email like this with active links in them without notifying you in advance of such or any change that would require interaction.

This is how they trick you and get either viruses in your computer or an increase in SPAM in your email. Always be cautious and remember, when in doubt call us, Eagle Feather Enterprises, your trusted computer technology and security advisors.
