Spam Alert:  Incoming@InterFax email

Client called the other day and asked about an email from InterFax in his inbox.  On the surface the email looks legit, but the attachment is a .zip file and that's a big red flag!

Spam Alert: Notice of appearance in Court #000469221

Straight from my junk mail folder comes this email "Notice of appearance in Court" complete with a .zip file attachment that, allegedly, is the court order.

Spam Alert! Mailbox size email

A client forwarded this message about his mailbox to me this morning.  

Like all the rest of us, this client is busy.  He's on the road more than he's in his office and he reads most of his email on his phone.  So, he probably didn't notice the sender's email address.

SPAM Alert – You received a voice mail

If your company uses a phone system that emails voice mail messages or faxes, be wary of emails that look legitimate but actually contain malware or links to infected sites.  Remember, you are your own best defense when it comes to protecting your computer, your company and yourself from malware and viruses.
