    Hi everyone,
    Just received an email from MacDonald's advising I was invited to receive a "FREE DAY" meal - just print off the zipped invitation card enclosed in the email.

    BEWARE - this is VERY LIKELY a Scam and most probably contains a worm or Trojan that will attach itself to your system once opened.

    DO NOT OPEN and immediately delete.

    That is not food. I think I'd rather eat dogfood.

    I have to be honest. There are some things on the McDonald's menu that I really like. Chicken tenders (not the nuggets), Southern chicken sandwich, and the frozen strawberry lemonade - yum!

    How would McD get your email? That's a red flag right there. I delete any unsolicited email with a zip file.

    The same way you "win" all those lotteries you did not enter... :shock:

    But seriously, anything with an attachment that I am not expecting, goes right into Trash.
