Your mailbox has been deactivated phishing email

I received a bundle of Your mailbox has been deactivated phishing emails today - 23 in all - and each one has a zip file that if opened throws some trojan malware into your machine giving the spamtwats access to your information. If you receive a mailbox deactivation email, don’t open the zip file!

The email has the subject line - your mailbox has been deactivated and it is cloaked so that itĀ appears to come from your own company. The email has a utility.zip file attached to it and it reads:

We are contacting you in regards to an unusual activity that was identified in your mailbox. As a result, your mailbox has been deactivated. To restore your mailbox, you are required to extract and run the attached mailbox utility.

Best regards, [Your company name] technical support.

This is a phishing email - if you get an email with the subject line saying your mailbox has been deactivated - delete it straight away. These spamtwats are thieves and they deserve to be shot continuously in the testicles with and air rifle until they die a hideously long and painful death. (Can you tell I don’t like them?)

If you receive this deactivation phishing email and you want to comment, or the wording is slightly different, let us know.
