Don’t take spam from a stranger

We were all taught as children, "Don't talk to strangers!" and "Don't take candy from strangers!"  So why would you open email from strangers?

That email you just got that says it's from your "Xerox WorkCentre"?  The "fax" it's got for you?  It's a virus.  So, unless you've got a Xerox WorkCentre in your office and you've been told it's OK to open those emails from your system administrator just delete those messages without even opening them.

The candy it's offering is so not worth it!

I've pasted a copy of the email in question below.  If you're not sure about an email, ask us 203.987.4566 - or email me your question - jenn@virtualdensity.com.
