Watch Out for Scam Emails – Subject “Greetings”

I’ve received a couple of e-mails this week, one from a U3A member,  which have a link in them that takes you to a scam website offering a  miracle weight loss product – Green Coffee Beans.  When you go on the website, it picks up your e-mail address book, and sends itself to all of those addresses.  The link apparently diverts you from the real website to a scam one built using WordPress.

The subject in the e-mail “from” a U3A member was “greetings”. Because it appears to be from a trusted source, people open it. DO NOT OPEN THE LINK if you get one of these e-mails!  And also BE WARNED –  your antivirus / internet security software does not detect a problem  with this e-mail.
