Alert: A Payment Was Received 1

I haven’t clicked on any of the links in this email, but I’ll take bets that they go do sites infected with a Trojan. ¬†There are several links at the bottom of the email, all go to different sites and none go to American Express.

This scam artist is hoping you the thought of a payment of over a thousand dollars (that you haven’t made) will panic you into clicking on one of the links. ¬†Ignore this email.

If you think you have accidentally infected your computer with the Trojan, download and scan it with the free versions of malwarebytes and superantispyware.

If you’re viewing this on a mobile device – you do have a security program installed, don’t you???

Thank you for your payment

    Thank you for posting this warning. I just received this same notification in my junk mail and googled “scam” + first few words. Your alert came up immediately — thankfully I had not clicked on any of the links.
