    Be wary of official looking emails with zip attachments - false PayPal (PP) emails

    Been getting a lot of spam / shilling emails with zip attachments. The zips are obviously some kind of virus or tracking malware software that will wreck your system.

    Today received one with the subject "Resolution of case #PP-016-620-232-023" and the below text:

    Transaction ID: 0569517588M7G8E4P

    Of course this is a spam / shilling email. I don't even have a PayPal account at that email address to which this was sent!

    Open a free account with them, copy and paste your headers into the box, and they parse the information out and automatically figure out where to send the abuse report. - Beware of cheap imitations
