Malicious and Fake Email Message - "Your Latest Chess Bill Is Ready"

The email message below with the subject: "Your latest Chess Bill Is Ready," which claims the recipients' Chess bill is ready and waiting for them online, is a fake sent by scammers that contains a Macro virus or Trojan that will infect the recipients' computers if they open the attached Microsoft Word document and enable Macro or "Content". Never enable "Macro" or "Content" for Microsoft Word or Excel documents sent in unknown or suspicious email messages. A Macro is a tool in Microsoft Office that allows a user to automate tasks. But, the same productive tool is being used by cyber-criminals to infect their victims'computer with a virus or Trojan. So, that is why it is important to only enable "Macro" or "Content" for trusted Microsoft Office documents.
