ecard scam! eeek!

If you get a fake e-card like this....

Do NOT click the linkies in it!

According to's email protection page THIS is why yoo can tell that emale is not reely frum them.
The individual sending the ecard should always be identifiable, such as in the subject line of the email itself. If you do not recognize the sender, be cautious. Be especially cautious of more generic subject lines.
And other stuff. Like they don't use grafiks in their notice yoo gotta ecard emales. Go see bout their email info so's yoo knows.

Real ecard notisses look like this...

Be careful out dere!

That's very good advice Sanjee! Thanks for sharing! I'm naturally suspicious by nature so I tend to delete any email whose author I don't recognise but it's so easy to click on a name you recognise like Blue Mountain.

I'm glad you liked the video Mini. Miss Peach's Mommy posted it on Facebook and I just had to post it on mine bloggie coz it made me laugh so much! I hadn't thought up anything for Wordless Wednesday before I saw that (I'm far too wordy, haha!).

I hope your Mom is winning her fight with the Alien Donkey, but I think she's still struggling coz her Skype is still wearing glasses! Please give her purrs for me :) xxx

Hi Sanjee, Mom Robyn & all the Hotties! Sorry we haven't visited for awhile - we've had lots of sicklies going on over here, and now I'm kinda sickly, too. We've missed you!

Those e-card scammers need use their computers for something constructive ... like kitty blogging!
