Try something like this:

HTML applications using scripting, Microsoft Office applications with macros, and Windows Script Files (WSF files) are gaining popularity as a way to trick people into opening them, and then encrpyting files on the local computers and also servers. There is no way to unencrypoting these files and documents must be restored from backups. In a number of cases, users computers must be formatted to wipe out the contents of the disk and Windows reinstalled.

As the perpetrators of these attacks, known as Ransomware, look for new ways of tricking people, the threat to security increases. The perpetrators are trying to extort money from people to ostensibly provide a key to unlock encrypted files. Often, when money is paid, unlock keys are not forthcoming.

Please do NOT open emails from strangers. Delete them immediately without opening. Do not be tricked by come-on advertising or pictures. Just delete the emails.

Thank you.

@yodaa - Thank you and I was pleased to help. Training and communication are the most important ways to prevent ransomware. Good luck with this.
