The Anonymous Widower

Another Scam Like The CFX Group

I have just received an almost identical e-mail to the one I received from the CFX Group.

Hello!

 

Your order has been accepted. Your order reference is 198668.

 Terms of delivery and the date can be found with the auto-generated msword file located at:

http:\creacioweb.net\xxxx.xxx

Best regards, Tel.: (734) 687 65 784

The e-mail I received was actually addressed to a legitimate company who supply milking machines. Note the xxx obscure the dangerous bit.

One characteristic of the e-mails is that they contain a link to a file called Order.zip.  This file probably contains some sort of virus.  There are more details here.

Interestingly, the web site http:\\www.creacioweb.net is registered in Spain.  The site containing the virus in the CFX Group case also was registered there!

  1. Does your spam filter not catch these.

    • It does. But I also have another filter that suggests ones I might like to look at.
