New Spam

For the past few days I've been getting a lot of emails from greetingcards.org
Is this a new spam problem?

Re: New Spam

Been having them at work the last few days.
Just spoofed as coming from 'greetingcards.org', the actual URL they give is either an .exe link or elsewhere which I assume will try to get you to run a dodgy .exe.
Don't even know if greetingcards.org is a legit Greeting Card URL, as I've never heard of them before. And I thought I'd had suddenly become popular Grin

Re: New Spam

I've had two of these arrive in the Junk folder on my mail account. In fact they're the only two Junk emails that have arrived in my mailbox during the past fortnight (everything else gets rejected at SMTP level).

Re: New Spam

they are not new spams, I used to get them about a year ago, they also used to include some nasties if you were silly enough to try and look at the card, bit of a nuisance as I was sent two genuine ones last month  Undecided
