RE: Invoice, Scam (4-6-2018)

The following is a scam in which the scammer pretends that they have a package for the victim. The package which was meant to be delivered to the victim accidentally got sent to the scammer instead. The scammer has included a link to a photo of the package.

Upon clicking the link, the scammer will be able to infect the victim’s machine and thus steal information of the victim. Using this information the scammer can access the victim’s accounts including banks, work, email, etc.

Some signs that this is a scam are the non-business email. The email address and the email signature are not the same. If you are not expecting a package there is no reason to trust this email that you have one waiting for you.

If you have received this email please delete it.

Hi,

A package was delivered to us by mistake…..I think

I opened the box and noted that your email was on the invoice…coming up to Christmas I thought it might be personal or work related.

We are just down the road by the Mcdonalds. I can drop it by if you will be in this afternnon?

I took a picture of the invoice, I can’t make out the name but you can clearly see your email address
