Recently I received an email from a client’s private email account with what appeared to be a Dropbox invite to view a PDF. Since I wasn’t expecting this email or file from our client my suspicions were raised. After emailing the client and asking if they had sent the email, which they hadn’t, I hovered my mouse over the button in the email that says, “Download PDF Here”. The link preview showed it went to a site other than Dropbox which clued me in further that this wasn’t a request from my client but indeed someone trying to gain account access information. This is what is often referred to as “phishing”.
By tricking you into entering your log in credentials on what you think is a normal log in screen for a site, they gather the username and password information. At a minimum this would allow someone into your Dropbox account and since many people use the same username/email and password for banking, email, social networks and others they can now use that information to access all of these accounts.

The News & Observer recently highlighted comments from Lineberry Marketing regarding webrooming, a new internet phenomena where people are researching products online and then going to a local store to make a purchase. The internet used to be percieved as taking business away from the local market but now it actually supplements the research prior to a local purchase. Great news all around for local small companies and businesses who are now taking advantage of the internet to increase revenue.

Lineberry Marketing is proud to be a “Hope Angel” corporate sponsor of the 2014 Angels Among Us 5K Run and 3K Family Walk held on April 26, 2014.
Donations received benefit the Robert Preston Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke which supports research and finding a cure for brain tumors. This is a worthwhile event and cause to support for various reasons but personally for me, it is to honor my mom who is receiving treatment at Duke. There is currently no cure for brain tumors but with continued support and funding, there is hope for better treatments and a cure. This event has raised over $14 million dollars since it began in 1994 and ensures that the vital research needed can continue.
