Consorcium E-Mail Scam
I got this email in my website's email inbox this morning. Following is the body of the message:

This is obviously a scam and will download a virus on my computer if I open the attachment that's included in the email.
First, notice the misspelling - there is no internet service provider called "Consorcium". BUT, there is one called Consortium. Second of all, my ISP is Verizon. Finally, notice that they didn't even say "Hello Sarah", or "Dear Ms. Hoffman" or anything. If they "know" so much about me, they should know what my name is too!!!
If you get an email like this one, DON'T OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. Delete the email, report it to the authorities or reply to it using four letter words. Your choice. Just don't believe what they claim.
