Puremobile Inc malware spam scam

A few days ago I wrote about a spam email that I received from Bobijou Inc. Of-course it wasn’t actually from Bobijou Inc, it was from a criminal spambastard. It seems that Mr Spambastard has become fed up with wrecking the reputation of Bobijou and moved on to Puremobile Inc, as I received the exact same email from them today, but this time, purporting to be from Puremobile Inc.

The details of the Puremobile scam email:

Subject: Your Order No  279559 - Puremobile Inc.

Judging by the number of comments that the Bobijou Inc scam email received, the Puremobile Inc scam email will be going out to millions of unsuspecting punters, so if you receive a copy, don’t open the zip file - simply delete it. If yours is a variant of the Puremobile Inc Spam scam above, we’d love to hear from you, so please do take two minutes to leave a comment. Have a fine day, :)

Received the email today. I suspected it was spam. Did not unzip but I did print it so I would remember to check it out. Thank goodness I got my confirmation right here. Thanks for being on top of things. I appreciate your efforts.
