Spoof Emails
« on: February 06, 2019, 01:42:20 PM »
Just in case any of you find this... I got an email a few days ago. I normally don't even look at unsolicited emails that contain attachments but this one caught my eye so I'm warning you about it, The message addressed to Recipient with the subject of
New announcement: Charter Member Sign Up Bonus this Week

their message was:
Good Morning,

I have a proposal for you. Please find the attached document file.

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions.

Thank you.

that was followed by an actual email that I sent out to all members back in 2014. I discontinued sending out mass emails to members years ago this one may have been one of the last ones. Somehow someone is using it to legitimize their Phishing attempt. I saved the attachment to a thumb drive and opened it on an old unused laptop I had saved. It triggered a security alert and Microsoft requested that I send it to them for analisis. I won't be sending out any emails to members if you get anything like described just delete it.
Have an Ice Day!
