The email attachment "SAFT-Employer-Relief-Fund-Receipt.pdf.html" is a fake SAFT webpage that ask recipients to sign-in. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the recipients' SAFT account credentials being sent to the scammers or cybercriminals. The cybercriminals will then use the stolen credentials to gain access to their potential victims' accounts and use them fraudulently.

If you were tricked by this scam, please change your SAFT account password and report it to the SAFT.
