Received an email from "email@amer.trendmicor.com" telling me that my security was not activated. But when I run the Trendmicro software, it appears to be protecting my computer. The message had a "click here" link. Did the email message come from you, or is it a phishing attempt?

Hi pennynotes and welcome to Trend Micro Community!

I understand that you received an email from "email@amer.trendmicor.com" telling you that your security was not activated.

Can you please verify to us the email address that sent you the notification for the security is not activated.

And by the way, upon checking your subscription you actually have a license that is expired. The message might be for the expired license.

Please let us know if the above information helped.

Thank you and have a great day!

To pennynotes and especially TM_Mark:

I'm noticing in the email address '....trendmiCOR' , not trendmiCRO. Unless this is something Trend Micro does which I have never noticed over the years, it sounds VERY phishy to me...Tim
