Norton Security blocked an attachment called STATEMENT_#0220873.exe

Tell tale signs were the digits of my account number, which ARENT 0402, the lowercase z in Lucazone, the fact that the attachment was an .exe file, but most of all because I dont use Amazon!

Could catch some people less awares people out though.

Ive seen another related to eBay and security detail breaches requiring you to change your passwords etc.....

Guess the online trading sites are being hit at the moment

Everyone should keep a constant look-out as there are many thousands of bogus emails doing the rounds.

If that catches anyone out, then they're going to be constantly caught out because it's no more realistic than the dozen or so bogus emails I get in my inbox (automatically moved to junk items) every day.

A general warning about such emails should be issued to anyone who uses the internet, and once issued I don't think further reminders need to be made as if you did a warning for every email we'd spend our lives reading warnings.

If you're stupid enough to open it you deserve the virus.

There's no need for constant virus alerts, the Windoze users would be here all day if everyone posted them.
