FBI-IC3 alerts new email scheme designed to extract personal financial information and implant virus.
SPAM E-MAIL CONFIRMING THE PURCHASE OF A COMPUTER.
The IC3 has received the following information concerning multiple e-mail hoaxes confirming the recipient's purchase of a computer:
* The first e-mail hoax claims the recipient made the purchase through an online service provider. The e-mail contains a link if the recipient wishes to dispute the charges to their account. Once the link is selected, the recipient is requested to provide their account information.
* The second e-mail hoax includes a PDF attachment claiming to be the order summary. The attachment contains a virus which will infect your computer.
THE E-MAILS ARE FRAUDULENT.
Be cautious of e-mails requesting personal and/or financial information. When made aware of any fraudulent purchases to your account, contact the respective company to file a report.
Further, do not open attachments from individuals you do not trust or know."
