Why Does Hallmark Send Phishy ECards

These days you can be forgiven if you think phishers are lurking beneath every clickable link in an email message. Unfortunately, sometimes they are. As a result, admins often set network content filters to tag such messages as spam, disable embedded links, or reject the messages altogether. Savvy recipients add to the filtering process by scrutinizing messages for off-shore english, like using the wrong adverbs and such.

For those selling discretionary goods, like greeting cards, such filtering can put a significant dent in your holiday sales. If potential customers aren't sure their messages will be read, they are less likely to buy. Why Does Hallmark Send Phishy E-Cards?
