SCAM ALERT: Copyright Protected Image Notice

You might receive notice of “Copyright Protected Images” being used on your website.

Keep an eye out for the horrible grammar and misspellings. Also notice they are linking to GoogleAPIS.com
Notice the mismatched emails. One is from Intuit, the Accounting software company. One is for Mailchimp, the newsletter company.

Most scams are horribly misspelled, have bad grammar, and are so obvious, but people still fall for them. NEVER click any links, call any numbers, forward said emails, or do anything past deleting them.
