Beware Phishing emails...they're everywhere!

Post by MSI »

Be careful
NEVER CLICK on a link in an email
independently go to the website and check it out
targets include credit card accounts, Amazon, Paypal
the emails look legitimate
but if you right click on the links you see...ahaaaaaa...something very fishy

this type of phish email recently and frequently comes in...
note the link address has NOTHING to do with McHenry Software so DO NOT CLICK

DO NOT CLICK NO MATTER HOW AUTHENTIC IT LOOKS
INDEPENDENTLY GO TO THE WEBSITE OR CALL THE VENDOR (AND DON'T USE ANY NUMBERS IN THE EMAILS)
