Beware of eFax Corporate Malicious Email Notifications

eFax users who have received email notifications like the one below, asking them to click on a link within the same email message to view a fax should not do so. This is because the email notifications are being sent by cyber criminals to trick the recipients into clicking on the link in them that downloads a malicious file or virus onto their computers. Any attempts to open the malicious file will in result in the recipients' computers getting infected with a virus, ransomware, spyware or other malware.

Please continue below.

    Thanks for the information - I just received such an email today (4 Sept. 2017). Since I was not expecting any faxes, and have no account, I wasn't tempted to click on anything - but checked just to be sure. Glad to have confirmation that it is spam.
