“Incoming Fax Report” Scam

Here’s another scam to alert your users to watch for.

You receive an email with a subject line similar to ‘INCOMING FAX REPORT: Remote ID: xxx-xxx-xxxx’.

The message body includes some fax-like info including data/time, speed, connection time, pages, etc. It then includes the statement “Please use the following link to download your file:“.

The link provided will take you to a page that will infect your computer with spyware/malware.

Spam filters can’t block these types of messages – you have to rely on educating your users to the threat and reminding them to stop and think.

Everyone stay safe out there!
