Worldpay Card Transaction Confirmation: Scam or Virus?


The Worldpay Card Transaction Confirmation is considered by some as a virus and for some, a scam. Whatever it is, Worldpay Card Transaction Confirmation is a security threat to those affected. In my view, it could be both an email scam and virus rolled into one malicious electronic letter. Here is the email received by “infected” users for your information:

Thank you!

Your transaction has been processed by WorldPay, on behalf of Amazon Inc.
The invoice file is attached to this message.
This is not a tax receipt.
We processed your payment.
Amazon Inc has received your order,
and will inform you about delivery.

Sincerely,
Amazon Team

This confirmation only indicates that your transaction has been processed successfully.
It does not indicate that your order has been accepted.
It is the responsibility of Amazon Inc to confirm that your order has been accepted, and to deliver any goods or services you have ordered.

Antivirus softwares which were able to intercept or filter this email indicated that this is an email virus similar to Olympic Torch/Invitation Virus and Koobface Virus affecting social networks. For your online security, do not open emails of these type. Just a word of caution so beware of these email scams and viruses. Beware!
