Greeting Card Spam

http://live.pirillo.com/ – QBack in the early days of the Internet getting a greeting card via e-mail used to be a cool event; but, in recent years, greeting card spam has become very prevalent, especially during a holiday season.

How can you identify these messages?

  • It use a generic name instead of your real name
  • It asks you to visit a website that you've never heard of
  • It tells you that you need to download some custom software
  • It asks for your bank or credit card information
  • It doesn't list who the card came from
  • It lists one of your friends' names, but your friend did not send the card

Do you have any advice on avoiding getting scammed?
