Fake Windows 10 Download Scam

For those who are still waiting for their copy of Windows 10 to download to their computers, be aware. There is an email scam currently running offering the update instantly. It comes as an attachment to an email (shown below).

If you open the attachment a virus infection will be activated. This will scramble all of your personal files on the computer. They will then try and extort money from you to un-scramble them.

If you do receive this email, delete it immediately!
