The email message below with the subject: 'You Have a PDF File via PDF Online,' is phishing scam created by cyber-criminals to steal the recipients' Google and other email accounts' username and password. The email message seems to be legitimate because it appears as if it came from PDF Online or Google Docs, but it was not. And, clicking the link in the email message will only take the recipients to the fake or phishing website, www.atrbc.co .za, which will ask them to sign in with their Google, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL or other email accounts username and password. But, if they attempt to sign into the fake website, their email accounts' username and password will be sent to the scammers behind the fake or phishing email message, who will use it hijack their email accounts.
