Lyn Whitehead Lancashire.pnn.police.uk Email Phishing / Virus …

I just had an email from email protected1, delivering an invoice for payment. It is a Word doc, but I have not yet opened it. It is obviously a scam of some sort and one that has not be picked up by Google (I use Gmail and they catch a lot of spam and phishing messages).

The email reads:

Hello

Please find attached an invoice that is now due for payment.

Regards

Lyn

If you get an email like this, don t open the attachment, don t reply.

Just delete it. If you open the email you are not at risk it is only if you open the attachment that there may be a problem. It depends on the nature of the doc whether virus or phishing.

There appears (judging from all the comments) that many people are being targeted with this today so don t worry, it is not just you!

Sane Security have also picked this up read about it here2.

Apparently, the attached document will auto run on Windows, and therefore infect your PC with something pretty nasty.

What is unclear is, how is somebody sending spam mail from a UK Police email address?

I cannot dig deeper right now (on my lunch break!) so if anybody knows, feel free to comment below update: lots of useful comments already, please do not post me too comments though!

Essex Police are fighting crime on-line (apart from Harlow)

Date posted: 09-10-2015 ECMECMWE attended the Essex Police crime meeting on Wednesday night over at Waterhouse Moor.

During the meeting, Essex Police extolled the virtues of the Essex Police Community Messaging System (ECM).

Essex Community Messaging (ECM) is a service which you can use to keep informed about the kind of crime and policing issues which affect you.

It has been running for over a year. Back in September 2014, YH tried to sign up for it but it did not recognise CM18 as a postcode.

We tried several times. It was one of those moments where you think it might be you. Until last night.

Whilst Essex Police were imploring Harlow residents to use it, the chair of the Berecroft Residents Association, Zulqar Cheema spoke from the floor and made the same observation.

When it comes to Harlow, computer said no.

Bush Fair councillor, Ian Beckett said he had the same problem and made it known to PCSOs.

Then again, we won t have that situation again as they are getting rid of most of the PCSOs.
