nEW Po received from 18176124543, scam (5-14-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating a system email. The email states that the user has a document waiting for them sent via one-drive. The document is attached to the email. The document is loaded with malware which will be used to steal PII (Credit cards, social security number and passwords) Some signs that this is a scam are the email address is not an official Microsoft account. The grammar in the email is off (you to you, nEW). Also the fact that there is just an attachment with little text is suspicious.

If you have received this email please delete it.
