An email with the subject of Company Complaint pretending to come from Companies House  but actually coming from a look-a-like domain Companies House <>  with a malicious word doc attachment is today’s latest spoof of a well known company, bank or public authority delivering a banking Trojan which will either be Trickbot, dridex  or Emotet banking Trojans. All of which show similar activity in a Payload Security report. They are using email addresses and subjects that will scare or entice a user to read the email and open the attachment. A very high proportion are being targeted at small and medium size businesses, with the hope of getting a better response than they do from consumers.

Remember many email clients, especially on a mobile phone or tablet,  only show the Name in the From:  and not the bit in < >. That is why these scams and phishes work so well. For more information visit
