I you click on “reply” to this email – look who it is really going to – firstname.lastname@example.org.
This email did NOT come from the address it claims to come from – the sender address has been “spoofed”. Ie, the sender address is fake. In fact that happened to me just a few days ago. My hosting company checked to see if my email had been hacked. It hadn’t, the spammers were just using my email as a fake sender address.
DO NOT open the attachment which I’m fairly sure will contain malware.
Also, the company referred to in this email is a legitimate company whose name is being used by the scammers to make their attachment seem authentic. (I debated whether or not to leave the details visible. If the company would prefer me to remove their details I will, but I stress again they are a legitimate company.)
