Bogus Chase Paymentech notification carries malware
Posted on 21.11.2012
If you receive an email seemingly coming from payment processing company Chase Paymentech, think twice about opening the attachment it carries.

The email purportedly delivers an electronic Merchant Billing Statement to the recipient:


Unfortunately, the attached file is nothing of the sort, but a piece of information-stealing malware.

"The scammers have attempted to make the email sound more believable by including a link to the genuine Chase Paymentech as well as legitimate sounding liability and confidentiality statements," Hoax-Slayer points out.

"Chase Paymentech customers may open the attachment in the mistaken belief that it contains a legitimate file associated with their account. Non-customers may open the attachment with the view that some error has been made that may need to be rectified as soon as possible," he explained the danger.
