Mother’s Day Scams – Be careful

The latest issue of Vipre Security News reminds us that Mother’s Day is a favorite occasion for scammers.

Watch out for these scams:

The Fake Flower Shop
The Famous but Fake Website
The Malware-infested Mother’s Day E-Card
Fake Gift Card

The article includes tips on how to avoid these scams. As always, be suspicious of links in any email message (and, if necessary, learn how to check if links go to the genuine locations) and attachments claiming to be entry forms, invoices, receipts, or failed-delivery notices. Also beware of an impersonal “To” address and generic subject.
