Default Bogus Emails and attachments

Common plague of todays internet are bogus emails with forged headings
and attachments.
Some may even appear that they are coming from stripers247.com

We will never send an attachment in an email. PERIOD!!!!
If you ever receive an email from [email protected] with an attachment dont open it. Delete it from your computer.

Common practices are statements saying that you must reply or your account would be dropped.

As with any email you should never open an attachment unless it is virus checked or you know who it is coming from and are absolutely sure it has been virus checked. These bogus emails claim they have been checked by Nortons antivirus.

Make sure you have a good virus checker on your computer and keep it updated. These viruses are trojans and can slip keyword loggers into your systems. If you have a firewall and you dont open attachments you can keep your computer relatively spyware and virus free.
