Important notice - fake emails from admin@thenappynetwork

Postby Web Wide Hosting » Fri Mar 05, 2010 6:20 pm

Hi Everyone,

Please be advised that there are scam emails running around purporting to be from admin@thenappynetwork.org.nz.

The message advises that there have been changes to 'mail security settings' and to click on an attached file to update your records....

NO MATTER WHAT - DO NOT DO IT!!!! DO NOT CLICK ON THAT FILE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a classic trojan delivery message, with the intention of putting some rather evil software on your PC. DON'T be caught out by it.

And remember, if you are ever in doubt about any email you receive from TNN - we will *NEVER* attach files to messages and ask you to click on them.

Anything else - if you are not sure - check back here with the Forum first before you follow *any* instructions or links in emails purporting to come from us..

This public service announcement comes to you from your friendly Tech Admin. Yes - the REAL one :) :)

Cheers,

Jon
