okay not a virus, only scam / spam

By Jaqui ·
new scam spam email going around:

this one actually took a couple of hours to track down enough info to say yup it's a scam.
( besides obviousness in subject )
then I decided to play nasty.
reported, with email to both companies that could be negatively affected, as well as scamorama.
