New Email Virus

Wells Fargo Warns Of Email Hoax: I got this yesterday, but Outlook blocked the attachment.

“The email, which is titled ‘Wells Fargo New Business Account Application’ states that the user’s ‘application’ has been rejected. If a user opens the attachment, however, a Trojan is placed onto the user’s system that will monitor and record personal information, such as passwords.”

What made this confusing was that I happen to have (several) business accounts with Wells Fargo. Click below for the text of the email.
