Canada Post Scam - Do not click on links


The following email has been circulating around the local area.  It contains fake links to sites that will download malicious software onto your computer.  Please do not click on these links.

A way to check for the validity of a link is to hover your mouse over the link and a popup window (sometimes on the bottom of your browser) will emerge that shows you the actual destination.  For example:

This link claims to go to disney but instead sends the user to nbcnews.  Hovering over this link would reveal the actual destination.
