    Invoice Email Scams

    I get so many fake invoices sent to my email addresses. I wonder how many people fall for this?

    Here's an example:

    Dear Sir,

    Kindly check the attached invoice for your kind reference using google doc.

    24696.invoice

    Await soonest reply.
    Regards,
    Lucy.
    When I clicked the link I got this:

    Re: Invoice Email Scams

    Chances are, if someone actually ask for an invoice. I just wonder Admin, what would happen if you click the link? Will the scammer be able to hack your email address or plant a malware on your computer?

    Thanks for sharing this. I will ask the question instead on the forum to get more information.
