DO NOT open email attachments from CrazyAboutTV!!!!      Sun Jun 13, 2010 8:59 am Reply with quote

The spammers have shifted into high gear! I have been inundated with emails that appear to be from people I know that tell me to open an attached file. In all cases, the person who appears to have sent the message did not send it.

I have actually received that spam from people claiming that my account at this forum has been suspended and the only way to recover it is to open the attached file. Obviously, there is no way I sent that message to myself.

Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do to stop this. It's very easy for anyone to make an email look like it's coming from someone else.

Be assured that no one at CrazyAboutTV.com will ever ask you to open an attached file.

These files are usually simply ads for Viagra or some such thing but this is also an easy way for hackers to get you to download a virus into your computer.

I heartily recommend that you never open an attached file unless the sender has explained what it is, assures you that it's virus free, and you verify it with the sender first by some means other than online.

Feel free to simply delete any email from CrazyAboutTV.com with an attached file as we did not send it.
