    Spoof E-mails being received

    My Bursar sent me a suspicious e-mail she received recently purporting to be from Netsuite containing a URL Invoice? Anyone else been getting these - we also had one from someone claiming to be Microsoft recently - same layout with the numbered invoice as a URL?

    We get alsorts like this but our GFI filtering just blocks it, informs me and the user and we just ignore it.

    Had one this morning from Microsoft Dynamic CRM or something. Quite clever, if you don't notice the URL is not Microsoft!

    We've been getting both of these daily over the last week or so. Some end up in Junk E-Mail, others don't, but we bin the lot of them.

    Almost every member of staff this week has recieved an "electronic remittance advice" email - they have been coming in from various Gmail senders to us.
    I've just blocked that subject for the moment - the email contains a ZIP file which sophos kills when you open it.
