John Lewis scam trojan email
JohnLewis.com Scam Email
We all love johnlewis.com, don’t we? John Lewis is one of the design trendsetters in internet stores today, so it really pisses me off that these scam bastards have used johnlewis.com to spread viruses, trojans, worms; call them what you will!
I received what is probably the first of many JohnLewis.com scam email with a zip file attached, saying I had bought a Nokia N95, and they were sending me the delivery details in a zip file. If you get a similar email - bin it!
Trojan email details
Subject: Thank you for settling the order No.71895
from: Orlando Davison -aquifere38 @ riverterminal.com
zip file: Dda6b1e9b.zip
Thank you for placing your order at our e-store.
Your order: Nokia N95, was shipped off at your address.
The tracking number of your postal parcel is indicated in the document attached to this letter. Please, print out the postal label for receiving the parcel.
The John Lewis email, if you read it, doesn’t even make sense - why the hell would anyone need to print out a postal label to receive a parcel? Nonetheless, these scam bastards that sent this out are expecting people to open the zip file, which will release the trojan, virus, worm etc. into your machine, either for fraudulent purposes, or just to bugger you up for fun.
Don’t be one of the unfortunates - shift + delete - get rid of it straight away!
