Title: Faked email spam from NI-Wild
Post by: admin on May 07, 2014
Just a headsup, some cheeky internet monkey has been sending trojan laden spam emails from payment at Anyone can choose to send email from any address, these chaps have randomly chosen us to give their spam an air of authenticity. However, the spam isn't targeted in any way at NI-Wild members, it's just going to random worldwide email addresses.

Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it except wait for it to stop, chances are all emails will be caught by spam filters but if anyone wants any more info get in touch.

As ever, never open an attachment you aren't expecting, especially if it looks suspicious.

The email would have looked something like this:
