E-cards and greeting cards are not work related and a scam!

Please DO NOT for any reason try and open or access any e-cards or greeting cards on any office workstations. If you would like to take the risk on your own home computer it’s up to you.

 

We have had 2 reported official looking ecards that install without warning “bad un-installable software” on your computer. The only option is to restore your computer to a date before you clicked the ecard or reload the pc.

 

The software that is loaded pops-up and tells you that you are infected with spyware/adware and to run the scans it offers to clean up your computer. This company does not exist and any money you donate to their causes will not be returned. There is no resource for actions to recover any money paid to them or the loss of your personal data and credit card information.

 

If you have any question please let me know,

 

Ask before you click if you are unsure please do not use company equipment to test if it’s bad or not.
