BE ON THE LOOKOUT!
Email disguised as a Hallmark E-Card.
It is an email that looks legitimate but is really a VERY bad virus. Save yourself some time and money by following these simple steps provided by Hallmark!
- The subject line of legitimate E-Card notifications from Hallmark will say, “A Hallmark E-Card from (name of the sender)” not a generic term like “friend,” “neighbor” or “family member.
- The e-mail notification will come from the sender’s e-mail address, not Hallmark.com.
- The notification will include a link to the E-Card on Hallmark.com as well as a URL that can be pasted into a browser.
- The URL will begin with http://hallmark.com/ followed by characters that identify the individual E-Card. Hover your mouse over the words “click here” in your e-mail. If you do not see the URL above, it is not a legitimate Hallmark E-Card.
- Hallmark E-Cards are not downloaded and they are not .exe files.
- In addition, Hallmark.com will never require an E-Card recipient to enter a user name or password nor any other personal information to retrieve an E-Card.
