An issue with our email address

Post by Brenda Joy » Sun Mar 22, 2015 11:57 am

A hacker made way into our email address and whilst living there sent out a message to all labelled 'IMPORTANT'. If this came to you please DELETE IT COMPLETELY. Do not open the document in it. It was a scam.
The Halenda site has been re-stored again (after hours of work) and re-secured.

Thank you all who alerted us to this.
Always best not to open anything that looks suspicious.

Thanks Brenda,
For others: we received the email but when we saw it wanted our email address and password re-entered, we decided it was wrong. We have deleted it.

Thanks Brenda, I started to download it and then cancelled because it didn't 'feel right'. I sent you an email to check whether or not this was from you, so you can just ignore that now. Glad your site is now restored. x

Same Here Brenda
I first forwarded it back using your address from my Computer address book and asked if it was from you, and of course the answer came back as yes.
I went to open it but my security immediately blocked it and said it was a scam so I deleted it.

As you say you can't be too careful - mongrels!

Thank you all. Don't think that it was a dangerous one just a hacker/scam and a thorough nuisance. I would swear if I was not a lady (or should I say if I wasn't once a lady -- female bush poets seem to lose that status :) ).

Have tried to send to everyone individually but our contact list is gee- normous.

Putting it onto the FB page will tip a lot of them off immediately - not to worry I did that :lol: but it could have gone up a couple of days earlier :?

I may not always succeed in making a difference, but I will go to my grave knowing I at least tried.
