Alert: Appliances Online Receipt Order #92032737

I've received four emails with the subject 'Appliances Online  Receipt  Order#' sent to different email address. The body of the message is designed to trick people they've received a receipt from Appliances Online.

The email is a fake and contains an attachment with the filename 'Appliances Online –' which contains the program with the filename 'Appliances Online - Receipt .pdf.exe'. Since the default for Windows is not to display the filename extension it is easy for people to think this is a PDF and not a program. I recommend that people turn on the option to display filename extensions which makes these malware emails easier to detect.

You should delete these emails.
