    Received via email:

    "I received an email from address: wordcup2018fifa@gmail.com - telling me that I was drawn in order to receive a quantity of money.

    I asked the guy danielhalewilliamsfifaworld@gmail.com

    regarding it and I received an email again telling me abut the lottery. After that, I search on google and I saw some news about this. So, that's why I am sending this email to you.

    I received an attached file with many descriptions about it. I believe that is a virus.

    So, if you need additional information let me know.

    thanks."
