Re: This spam looks legit ....

An other realistic one this morning:

spam_swisscom_07_2018.pdf

a) I'm not a (direct) Swisscom client
b) it came to an email-address of mine which Swisscom would not have

sender: ginzberg.net, which says greybox software, site under construction.

Guess I'll get reminders sometime soon because I won't be bothered to check whether an invoice is genuine

Got the same this morning, same story. Moved it to the Kapersky scam box.



Such BS...

Re: This spam looks legit ....

That's a good one:
<<THE DOCUMENT IS ATTACHED TO THE EMAIL
Important changes in the lease contract
New conditions and details can be found in the attached file
Please sign 622076638478_06082021.zip
Thank You>>
From Sitracom Côte d'Ivoire.

I have no lease - okay the flat but my landlord doesn't speak English much.

But here comes the best bit, the next paragraph in the email:
<<Do Not Share This Email
This email contains an attached file that can be opened by downloading it to your computer. Office components are required to operate correctly. DO NOT share this attachment with others.>>

that's protective ..... of "others".

Are you referring to me? To a post of 2018? LOL.
