How the scam works:
(with video below) You receive an e-mail from a big chain store that you purchase groceries from on a regular basis (eg. Walmart, Superstore, etc). “We are now happy to offer online your last receipt. Please find it attached to this e-mail. Thank you for shopping with us”.
Most likely the attachment will be a Zip. file, that will contain a virus, keystroke logger, or malware. Look at the domain name of the sender’s e-mail. Is it the store’s name.com or does it have extra letters and numbers (bestbuy.com or bestbuy529a5.com)?
