Dear all,
As you may have noticed, yesterday our email address was hacked and used to perform a well known phishing scam to try and convince people to pay money to supposedly rescue me, Trudi, from Spain. I can assure you all I am very well here in Ennistymon and we have taken extensive measures to increase the security of our email. The mail you received was in itself no threat to your computer, private data or your personal information at all - it was just trying to convince you to send money like so many other email phishing scams. It is important to note that this was a hack carried out external to The Gallery, Computers and Data. G-mail is a very popular email provider that many of us use and is 99% of the time reliable. We have informed g-mail of the incident and hope that this is the last time we have such an occurrence.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your concern and I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
With best regards,
From Trudi
And all of us in the Courthouse.
