    I have E-Mailed our staff to say that if they have any doubts we can check any messages that do not seem genuine.

    We had one last year accusing the teacher of copyright violations, the teacher was that enraged as she had never downloaded anything that she clicked on the link to complain......

    They are very common, I think a virus of some kind is punting them out from infected systems. I saw a sharp rise to my own server and had a few land in my inbox at work. They all ran the same line of alarming claim, severe penalties, limited time to act, click this dodgy ZIP/PDF/HTML file to view corresponding information.

    Apparently I have lost loads of DHL and Amazon orders, missed a court appearance, had my car fined, ignored important documents and breached multiple copyright laws according to these E-Mails.
