Fake Your-Site.Com emails  Reply with quote  

We have been made aware of some false messages being sent appearing to be from Your-Site staff. The body of the message is as follows:


Hello user of Your-site.com e-mail server,

Our antivirus software has detected a large ammount of viruses outgoing from your email account, you may use our free anti-virus tool to clean up your computer software.

Further details can be obtained from attached file.

Best wishes,
The Your-site.com team http://www.your-site.com

It is also possible these messages would use your own domain name instead of your-site.com.

These were not sent by Your-Site staff. We never email attachments and it can be assumed that the attachment contained in this message is a virus.

It is best to never open any attachment you did not expect to receive, even if it appears to come from someone you trust. Any time you receive a message that appears to be from Your-Site.com staff but you think it may be fake please feel free to ask us if the message is valid.
