Spoofware emails

Spoofware emails

          So, we’ve recently noticed a number of these Spoofware emails come in :      HarkTheHerald.com        06/23/2018 to 06/23/2019           $86.00                   1 Year      Secure Online Payment –  http://defunken.funk/link.php?M=24680&N=EE-I=EE-I- F=OHHH      Attn: Dave      This important expiration notification notifies you about the expiration notice of your domain registration for HarkTheHerald.com search engine optimization submission. The information in this expiration notification may contain confidential and/or legally privileged information from the notification processing department of the Domain Seo Service Registration to purchase our search engine traffic generator.  And on and on . . . So, just try reading that first sentence aloud. Sounds a bit over the top you think ? Like, the notification is notifying you about a notice !      Failure to complete your seo domain name registration HarkTheHerald.com search engine optimization service process may make it difficult for customers to find you on the web.  So, not REALLY a scary email, IF you read the fine print further on. But up front is a clear indication of $86 – AND it is due now to avoid the imminent expiry of, er, something. Ignore it. (Oh, and by the way, the registration period, think about it – it’s one year AND one day ! Another little hint that this isn’t such a legit demand.) Keep your scepticism on high alert...

Is it time for an upgrade?

Upgrades can help boost your computer’s performance and keep equipment healthy. With so many new products and offers on the market, it’s difficult to know what to do when you feel your computer needs updating or even upgrading. Hardware can help significantly increase your computer’s performance and we can help find a perfect solution for you. We help identify if there is an actual hardware problem before upgrading. Help maintain your computer by performing some basic tasks like; Uninstall any programs you don’t use or want anymore. Allow for any updated when prompted. A hardware upgrade (increasing the size of a hard-drive), can effectively turn a slow machine into a fast one. RAM – you could benefit from more ram in your computer, especially if your computer slows down when you are opening several programs at the same time. Hardrive – upgrading your hard disk helps especially if you are running out of storage space. Processor – a faster processer can help your computer run faster but it needs enough RAM to install this. Our friendly team of IT experts can help provide essential upgrade solutions, tailored for you. We provide affordable packages for equipment and helpful advice.
