Athletique Inc. Warns About Fraudulent Spam E-Mail
Athletique Inc. has become aware of fraudulent spam e-mail messages claiming to be from myathletique.com. The headlines and message content vary. The company is not sending these messages via e-mail, our e-mail addresses have been "spoofed" as a part of a hoax.
As with any possible spoofing, the recipients should follow the procedures described in the June 27, 2007 Department of Justice Press Release:
"These spam e-mail messages are bogus and should be immediately deleted. Computers may be put at risk simply by an attempt to examine these messages for signs of fraud. It is possible that by "double-clicking" on attachments to these messages, recipients will cause malicious software - e.g., viruses, keystroke loggers, or other Trojan horse programs - to be launched on their computers. Do not open any attachments to such messages. Delete the e-mail. Empty the deleted items folder."
