Fake and Malicious CargoSmart Email - "BL Draft is Ready for Review"

Would you share this article with someone to help inform him/her?

The email message below, which claims that a BL Draft is ready for review from CargoSmart, is a fake and is malicious. The email, which appears as if it was sent by CargoSmart, a company that provides global shipment management software to shippers, consignees, logistics service providers and other ocean carriers, is actually being sent by cyber-criminals with a virus or a Trojan horse attached. Any attempts to open the malicious attachment, will infect the recipients' computers with a virus or Trojan horse, which will create a back-door on their computers that will allow cyber-criminals access to their computers. With access to the victims' computers, the cyber-criminals will steal their victims' personal and financial information from their computers.

Please continue reading below.

The cyber-criminals will then use the victims' information to steal their money and/or identities. They may also take control of the victims' computers remotely, from anywhere in the world, and use the computers to commit other cyber-crimes, which will be traced back to the victims, who may get arrested for something they know nothing about.
