Thank you for your Payment

Thank you for your Payment

 In the past couple of days, I have had a few emails with the subject “Thank you for your Payment”.  Thankfully, I could pre-view them in Mailwasher, without actually downloading them.  They were allegedly from either credit card companies or Macy’s; and with amounts in dollars.  However the message might intrigue some people and they are persuaded to explore further.  Oh! What wonderful webs they weave! 

The spoof DHL email

This particular trick started a year or so ago; however I got this version the other day. 

Subject:           DHL Tracking Number 375239601116

 Hello!

The courier company was not able deliver your parcel by your address.

You may pickup the parcel at our post office personality,

The shipping label is attached to this e-mail.

Please print this label to get this package at our post office.

 Thank you for attention.

DHL Delivery Services.

The idea is to persuade you to click on the attachment, which then infects you with something nasty.  The opening ‘Hello!” is a give-away – most serious emails would be a addressed to a specific individual or business

 At least with Mailwasher  (how I love the program), I could check all of them beforehand; without the need to download and open them.
