    I shared one of these emails with eFax to ask how to spot it as fake. Their response was that eFax sends a PDF files of the received fax to users - NOT a link to follow.

    Thank you for the posting about the «efax» malicious emails. I have received three messages today (2014-03-18) indicating I had received a fax from a local phone number. The web address of THE link they invite you to click in order to see the supposed fax is: http://www.efax.com/fax/fax_view.aspx?fax_id=5148498492

    However, when hovering over it, the website address is: http://tauszportal .hu/cache/pdf_efax_ 5148498492.zip

    Tauszportal .hu is the website of a Hungarian photographer. I doubt that he knows his computer is being used maliciously...
