Today I got one purporting to be from Hallmark. There are several red flags:
- It says I received a card, but it doesn't say from whom.
- The subject line starting with "Hey..." is not Hallmark's usual style.
- The "To" line says "undisclosed recipients."
- The subject line is missing a comma after that inappropriate "Hey."
Since the file is called "Hallmark.exe," the unsuspecting might go so far as to launch it, and install a virus on their computers.
Hallmark offers a few other things to watch for, including these:
Spread the word. Hackers will continue to send this garbage as long as there are uninformed people opening it.
- The e-mail will come from the sender's e-mail address, not Hallmark.com
- Hallmark cards are displayed on their Web site, not downloaded.
