The Electronic Payments Association has recently issued on their website a warning that fraudulent emails are being sent out in their name. Our office has been getting a bunch of these lately (I had three in my in-box this morning).
It goes without saying, *don’t* open the .exe file that is embedded in the email. Clearly, they’re phishing.
This, BTW, is a variation of a problem that's been going on for nearly a month.
More from NACHA (a legitimate organization).
