The Fake and Malicious Email
From: Reservations Sydney Airport
Attachment name: booking_hotel_ confirmation.zip
I hope this email finds you well. I am contacting you in relation to your bookings for tomorrow night with us here at Rydges Sydney Airport.
We currently have THREE bookings in place for you.
To ensure that this is indeed correct and not a duplicate booking due to a technical glitch would you be able to kindly confirm that you will be requiring the three rooms booked?
Once you have confirmed this, I’ll notate to similarly allocate the rooms adjacent to each for convenience on arrival.
We look forward to receiving your confirmation (and welcoming you to our Hotel tomorrow!)
