Beware FriendGreetings.com

If you get an email telling you that you have a free e-greeting card waiting for your a FriendGreetings.com, I highly recommend that you delete it.

In an audacious move, FriendGreetings will ask to install a program on your computer. In the End-User License Agreement (EULA) included in the installer, you give FriendGreetings the right to send a SPAM to everyone in your email address book!

I personally think this is a rotten way to do business as it will catch many people unaware. It does reinforce the point, though, that you shouldn't install anything on your computer unless you are completely clear on what it does.
