eMails Advertising Insurance May Lead to Computer Virus-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
The Affordable Care Act mandates that everyone in the U.S. gets health insurance. Because of this there has been an influx of various companies advertising a variety of insurance policies by eMail. Some are fake and could direct computer users to a site that will infect their systems with a virus.
The Truth or Fiction Team has gotten several such eMails in the past few days and we have noticed that they all have one thing in common. The ads are really one image with one link where the URL is not an official insurance company website.
Some of these images even show a link to click to request removal from the distribution list. This is a trick that will direct your computer to another website.
Do not click the image because that could result in a possible infection to your computer systems.
