Not only that. The attached file should not be open because my smart email provider (Yahoo) is telling me that I should not open it because it can harm my computer system once I opened the files and download it. Here’s the caution reminder from Yahoo mail service.
Attachments in this email may contain harmful content and cannot be downloaded.
If I opened the file and my computer will get viruses, the scammer will easily find my computer database and steal my information. The scammer’s objective is to first know my personal information and keep on sending me email phishings.
Good thing, we don’t easily believe to this kind of email. The best thing to do is to block the email address and delete the messages. I am sure if you blocked the email address, the scammer can never send you another email again.
