I just received the same thing, and didn't open it, but I am waiting for a payment from an overseas company I didn't want to throw it out. So I googled the number and found your post. Thank you!

Thanks for telling us that it is malware. I was pretty sure but now know for sure.

Yikes!! I received this email this morning. I downloaded the zip file and scanned it with Microsoft Essentials, IoBit Malware Fighter and no problem identified. When I clicked on the zip file, it opened and I saw the content for a brief moment then it evaporated. No sign of the email or the file on my computer. Then I found this blog. I just ran a scan with MalwareBytes - nothing found. Any suggestion will be appreciated. I am worried.

Yup, they got it to me too. Thanks for having the info. Nice to see others doing the search, just think how many don't.

Just got one of these (using a pdf file) this morning. Saw the phone(fax) number and after Googling it I found this page. Thanks for confirming it's a phishing scam.

Keep up the great work!
