HEADS UP - POSSIBLE EMAIL PROBLEM

Added on: Tue 19th June 2018

Hi all, just a heads-up.
There is a suspicion that someone in our membership has had their online address book compromised (that is an individual member - not the PU3A database).


Others have been sent an email looking like it is from someone they know in PU3A - but it isn't.


When you open the mail there is a link encouraging you to click it --------- DON'T


We don't know if this link is one to introduce a virus or some kind of "trojan" into your device - but it isn't worth taking the chance.


The ones received by members so far have been titled "Precious Memories", but beware of anything with a link in it unless you have verified the email authenticity with the sender or are expecting it prior to receipt.


Also this is a prompt for EVERYONE to make sure their virus-guard is up to date and turned on.

 

It is an unfortunate fact of life that email's do suffer from these things sometimes - just like your front door letter box gets attacked by the Postman with rubbish leaflets encouraging you to spend your hard earned cash on rubbish you don't want anyway.

BE SAFE OUT THERE!
