New Spam Scam Targets Office 365 Customers - That means you!

Using Office 365 to run your mission-critical office operations?  If you're a Singlesource IT customer there's a good chance that you are. Microsoft's Office software has been the cornerstone of business productivity since the dawn of the PC era. And with the launch of Office 365, there are no signs of that slowing down.

That success makes Office a juicy target for spammers. We've been receiving reports of targeted spam messages sent to Office 365 users. (See graphic above.) They look legit, correctly listing your domain and email address, claiming that "Your Office 365 Business statement is ready."

But on inspection, you'll see that the important links don't point back to Microsoft. Most likely they will redirect you to a compromised 3rd party website - a website set up to install viruses, ransomware, or to steal financial details. If you get one of these emails, don't take the bait. Ignore it, delete it, but don't click those links!

If you have any questions, just give us a call. We can double-check any suspicious emails, and make sure that you've got a legitimate copy of any invoices or statements that you might need.
