Phishing Email – Not the Commonwealth Bank

Today’s Phishing experience is brought to you by ‘Not the Commonwealth Bank’.

Let’s work through the highlighted fields to show why this is a ‘fake’ email and deserves nothing but the delete key:

  1. ​Name of the sender is Commonwealth Bank but the email address is tah204@montana.com
  2. Possible Spam pre-fixed to the subject
  3. Outlook has added a warning ‘This message was identified as a phishing scam.
  4. If you hover over the ‘Click here to proceed‘ you are shown the following web site http://www.viamanaus.###.br/wp-admin/user/account/Login.php
  5. Our SPAM filter also displays the sender details as tah204@montana.com

Then there is the poor English and Grammar
