NOT From Amazon - Please share

FW: Your Amazon.co.uk order #261-5508270-8013475
 
We have had three of these today, two came with a little executable inside a zip file called "Order Details.zip". It does not appear to be a virus but is almost guaranteed to compromise your computer somehow or send you to a fake Amazon site to get you to enter your details (phishing). We weren't prepared to find out and neither should you.
 
Tips on spotting a fake.......
 
If you look at the three email addresses below you will see that they are not from Amazon
The email does not contain a recipient's name - A good test from Amazon, eBay and PayPal - they always email using your name as it appears on their system, never 'Dear Customer' or in this case 'Good Afternoon'.
If you are suspicious, open a new browser window, type in the name of the site you're not sure about (don't copy and paste), make sure it's on a secure page (https://etc.... or with a Padlock symbol)  Log into your account and look in 'Messages'. If these sites are genuinely messaging you, there will be some reference to that fact in your online account.
 
Please Please Please Share these posts on facebook, twitter, Google+, LinkedIn or any other social networking sites, the more people that can spot these fakes, the better. Help stop the Scam emails.
