Barclays Premier League Scam With Malware Risk

Looks like I won again! All I have to do is “cotact” Mr. Lawrence Clark. As usual all the tell tale signs of a scam are present; the famous “undisclosed-recipients, spelling mistakes, yahoo contact email address. What is different this time is the attachment of the .vcf file.

The risk of malware being contained in a vcf file extension is considered medium, not worth taking a chance and opening. It is already a risk to open any attachment let alone one attached to spam.

This one gets a Flush and Run rating.
