Police Warn of Virus Attachment in Fake Groupon Email

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Corpus Christi Police Department has issued an alert to all Coastal Bend residents to watch out for a virus that is being transferred by using a fake Groupon deal.

The email looks legitimate, using the Groupon logo and all, but the fake email has an attachment called Group Coupon.zip. It infects Windows operating systems.

Police advise residents to avoid opening that attachment, and if you have any questions, call the Better Business Bureau at 361-852-4949.
