123greetings gives out Virus

I recently received an email from 123greetings.Com Web Admin Team asking me to include a link to their site in my blog. So i tried to visit their website and as soon as I opened it, it had so many pop-ups, which got my computer infected with virus. I emailed back to the same address where I received the request from, but I never received a reply. I wonder WHY??

I was very disappointed with this “top greetings site” and I would never ever use their service to send greeting cards. It is their responsibility to protect their visitors computer from getting infected rather than doing the opposite and infect the computers of innocent people by having advertisements which are not user friendly.

Well, I learned my lesson, Don’t Use 123Greetings.Com because there is a chance that they will have sneaky pop-up messages which will get your computer infected. I wonder how many other people also got infected by their excessive CPX advertising? (Realizing they are ranking on the first page for greetings card term and many others).

I would never want to visit that site again..I hope you do the same.. 123 Greetings gets a bad rating from me because I really had a bad experience with this greetings cards website.

Here is a review from a random person I found :
“I received an ecard from my friend, i visited the 123greetings.com link and my Norton Antivirus gave me a message that this site contains virus and I immediately stopped browsing”

  1. I have never trusted “card” sites, I got infected several years ago and have never visited another “card” site since.

    I’m sure there are some good legit sites but the interactive ones sorta scare me.

  2. Hi Kamran,

    Thank you for letting us know about your experience regarding suspicious software downloads from our site. I understand your concern. I wanted to assure you that 123Greetings does not attempt to install viruses, malware or any other software onto a user’s computer. It would be a very short-sighted strategy for us to do so.

    If you feel that unknowingly, you have installed any spyware or adware, I suggest you use the software of your choice to clean your system. I personally use SpyBot Search and Destroy other people in my office also use Ad-Aware Please note that neither of these products is in any way affiliated to 123Greetings.com.

    We hope you find these suggestions helpful and look forward to having you more often on our site.

    Thank you,
