      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

Reminder about E-Cards

Recommended Posts

Just a friendly reminder, especially to those who aren't so computer savvy...Do not open E-CARDS that do not specifically mention who they are from. Hallmark, Mamarocks,, etc., will ALWAYS have a recipient. I was reminded of this because I received two in the last 5 minutes. I knew immediately that they were fakes, but needed to share this with all of you.

 

Two dead give-aways:

 

No recipient

and

When you place (NOT CLICK - don't do that) your mouse over the link which states, 'Click here to see it' (or something of similar nature), it will show some bizarre web address.

 

I copied the email I just received so you could see it.

--------------

Hello!

 

You have recieved a Hallmark E-Card.

 

To see it, click here,

 

There's something special about that E-Card feeling. We invite you to make a friend's day and send one.

 

Hope to see you soon,

Your friends at Hallmark

 

Your privacy is our priority. Click the "Privacy and Security" link at the bottom of this E-mail to view our policy.

The click here to see it link leads to this site: http://csk-spzoz.waw.pl/~apteka/card.exe DO NOT CLICK ON THIS!!!!!

 

Notice it's an executable file! Danger, danger, Will Robinson!!! :nuts:

 

So always take your time and if it doesn't look right, throw it in the trash!!!

 

Make sure it always states a name and address you DO recognize, then it is okay.
