Delta Airlines Email scam

I received a phishing email from Delta Airlines (or Delta Air Lines, as it is on the email),┬áthis 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 (153KB)

The Delta phishing email reads:

How long do I wait to eat or drink after using this? I’d recommend 28 days for all spammers! :)

Is it possible to pay monthly payments at lower rates than what the credit card companies are charging me? I need some debt relief. Don’t we all, Brice. Why don’t you check out your own website, you spamming bastard? Have a nice day now…………… :) BM
