This E-mail is from MyCheckFree, a company I use to get bills online from 
companies that don't offer online bill pay through their own website. I'm 
sitting here reading this saying to myself "Oh Well" like I care. HA! HA!

December 6, 2008

We take great care to keep your personal information secure. As part of these 
ongoing efforts, we are notifying you that the computer you use for online 
bill payment may be infected with malicious software that puts the security of 
your computer's contents at risk. This letter will help you determine if your 
computer is actually infected and advise you how to fix the problem and 
protect yourself against future risk.
The malicious software affects some but not all customers who accessed online 
bill payment on Tuesday, December 2, 2008. For a limited period of time, some 
customers were redirected from the authentic bill payment service to another 
site that may have installed malicious software. Your computer may be infected 
if all of the following are true:
You attempted to access online bill payment between 12:30 a.m. and 10:10 a.m. 
Eastern time (GMT -5) on Tuesday, December 2, 2008, and 
You were using a computer with the Windows operating system, and 
You reached a blank screen rather than the usual bill payment screen when you 
attempted to navigate to online bill payment, and 
After reaching the blank screen, your computer's virus protection program did 
not tell you via pop-up or other messaging that malicious software was 
detected and quarantined.
If all four of the conditions above are true, your computer may be infected. 
We have arranged with McAfee, the world's largest dedicated security 
technology company, to provide you with an assessment of your computer's hard 
drive and remove any malicious software. Please contact us at 877-800-4864 for 
further instructions. We will also offer you both advice and free services 
that can help you mitigate any risk you may face as a result of this incident 
or other everyday exposures you may encounter.
We value your business and your trust, and we apologize for any inconvenience 
this recent incident has caused.
Thank you.
David M.
