Alert: watch out for spam “Order no.” emails that contain malware

Our contact centre has received hundreds of calls about scam emails arriving in victims’ inboxes that are likely to contain malware.

All the examples that have been reported to us use spoofed emails addresses in order to appear legitimate.

They are designed to play on your curiosity and get you to download the attachment which is likely tocontain malware. It appears the scammers are changing the company name, date, order number and times whilst spamming out these emails.

Three legitimate businesses whose company names have been used as part of the scam said that these are not associated with them in any way. A further forty variations have been logged by our contact centre.

Victim receiving calls to her mobile

A student has also reported to us that the spammers have used her number in one of these emails and she is receiving multiple calls on her mobile as a result, all asking for Howard.

It is important to remember that this is a scam email – your credit/debit card will most likely not have not been charged.

If you receive one of these emails, do not open or download the attachment, delete it and report it to us
