Trojan e-Mails

Updated 07/15/2017

  It is possible, and has been seen, where legitimate websites have been hacked and part of the legitimate
  website is then used for malicious or criminal purposes. This is not an indication the registered owners

  REMEMBER: Just because you DO NOT SEE A LINK does not mean one has not been embedded into the
                    text, pictures, a signature, anything can contain a link today. Use the "hover" approach with
                    your mouse (moving the mouse above something on the screen and see if a small rectangle
                    is displayed with information in the rectangle. If you see this, there is a link hidden in there!)
