Thank you for setting the order Phishing Scam
Phishing Scam - Thank you for setting the order email
I wrote earlier in the month about a phishing scam email I received, supposedly from PCMemoryStore.com, but since then I’m receiving dozens each day of the same type of phishing scam, with the subject line, Thank you for setting the order followed by a number - the most recent being Thank you for setting the order No.475456.
The scammers seem to have dropped the pretence that you are going to receive a Sony Vaio, or some other luxury consumer product from a specific store; they are now simply signing the emails “Internet Store”
I know you would have to be really off your guard or gullible to be taken in by the email, but some people will be tempted to click on the zip file and open it to see what it is - DON’T!If you receive an email with the subject line - Thank you for setting the order - delete it from your system immediately as it contains viruses, trojans and general malware.
The last email I received read:
Thanks you for setting the order No.475456
from Wesley Dye
