Do NOT click on Margaret Masson’s message.
There seems to be a flood of these emails at the moment which are infecting computers and then forwarding the message to all in the contacts file.
Once infected, a full clean of the computer is required. For many this will be a tiresome chore. For those not technological savvy it may mean professional assistance = money.
Many, but no means all, can easily be identified by the subject line “Hey”. I’m sure this will soon be changed to something else though. The common theme with the current flood is that they simply contain a link. If you receive a message like that don’t click. If it’s from a name you recognise, it will simply mean that their computer is infected.
A general rule of thumb is to be very very VERY careful about opening any link emailed by anyone.
Sorry to bore those who are aware of the problem, but it becoming an ever increasing problem at present.
