Delta Airlines Email scam
I received a phishing email from Delta Airlines (or Delta Air Lines, as it is on the email), this morning that I haven’t seen before, so I thought I’d draw your attention to it. It’s obviously a scam email, but some people will open the attached zip file, particularly if they have just booked a flight to travel somewhere, without thinking.
The Delta Air Lines email had the subject line : Online order for airplane ticket N648365 and it came from a Gloria Jackson, although it used my own email address as the sender - doh! The Zip file attached was eTicket.zip (153KB)
The Delta phishing email reads:
