    So I get an email today stating that its from Delta Airways. It says it comes from ticket support.
    My wife opened it (I wish she hadnt) and it says this.

    Notification,

    E-TICKET NUMBER / 2 909 1240904290 2
    SEAT / 18E/ZONE 3
    DATE / TIME 26 JUNE, 2012, 09:47 PM
    ARRIVING / Plano
    FORM OF PAYMENT / XXXXXX
    TOTAL PRICE / 263.63 USD
    REF / LE7449 ST / OK
    BAG / 6PC

    Your bought ticket is attached to the letter as a scan document.
    You can print your ticket.

    It wants me to download the documents for the flight details , so that I can print it off.

    Ive not booked any flights with this company, so where does the scam come in?
    Or is it a virus if I download the document?
    Si

    the attachment is most probably infected. I hope you haven't opened it.

    "HACKER SINCE 1991."

    Hey Jazzc, when I bought my first 486dx the told me this was the fastest computers would ever get, I would
    never need to buy another one again.

    Windows for workgroups FTW!
    Who told me to become a Lotus Notes professional.
