    Default Warning: Fake solicitation about upgrades for pci compliance and crypto

    WARNING: there's a company masquerading as Zen Cart, but which is NOT.
    They are telling people that mandatory upgrades are required, and they are stealing peoples' FTP credentials.

    One brand name they're using is: https:// pcidss - compliance .com

    THEY ARE NOT RELATED TO ZEN CART IN ANY WAY.

    Their emails contain text like the following WHICH IS FRAUDULENT and MISREPRESENTING:
