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.

I don't know about you, but the only time I've been in a court is as a potential juror but still I can tell there are several issues that should tip you off that this is spam and likely infected with something nasty.

Spam Alert! Corporate eFax Message

You've probably seen it before; I know I have.   It's one of *those* emails; it's an attempt to take advantage of your trusting nature and of your busy day.  But don't be taken in.  Don't be fooled.  It's spam.

In general, if the email seems hinky it probably is.

Facebook Phishing Scam

Just in time for the Christmas!  It's another phishing scam!  I found this, right where it should be, in my junk Email folder this morning.

If you get this email, delete it.  Under no circumstances should you trust a random email that announces you've been blocked.
