Thank You

The link from the email above was a bit.ly link.  This link would have taken you to a page on a server that is not associated with Weber.  Be careful about clicking on these links.  Just going to that site would have infected your computer with malware.

To see where a link would have taken you, hover over the link and verify that is the site you wanted to visit.
