If anyone receives an email advising that they have a speeding fine showing options to view the camera image - DO NOT BLINDLY ATTEMPT TO OPEN THE LINKS.
A work colleague received this email and didn't question its legitimacy, forwarded it to me and asked me for help to view the files as he couldn't open zip files on his computer. BAM! I have lost all of my documents as they are all encrypted now.
The point of the scam is to get you to pay lots of money to the scammers to get your documents back.
It's vicious. We have an IT person trying his best to recover what he can, but I'm not hopeful at all.
Just thought it wouldn't hurt to warn people to always be wary, as a lot of these scam emails look legit, but there are usually small clues that give them away (look at the email address, grammar errors, etc).
