I cannot believe the amount of people taking this FAKE email seriously, it’s been around for a long time. Sure, we should take virus seriously, but too serious not being careful, you’re making a fool of yourself like forwarding this email to your friends. Such BS, no such virus, however there is a similar virus, and if you have antivirus then you’re safe 🙂
Subject: Fw: : READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT DELETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I talked to my brother about this and he said usually a Hallmark card will have a link to go to the internet to see it, not an attachment in the email, so he wouldn’t open it. However, there may be others out there like me who don’t know this, so I am forwarding the warning. Like it says below, better safe than sorry… Jerry
Better to be safe than sorry
