We believe that somewhere between 10 million and 100 million copies of this Virus Trojan email have been sent out and United Utilities have had over 1 million bounce back messages from emails sent to invalid email addresses sent to their servers from invalid email addresses. UU Scotland have now shut down their email servers for these email addresses which gives some indication of how serious this issue is for them.
To be clear - this message was NOT sent by UUSCOTLAND (UUSCOTLAND@uuplc.co.uk) and their email address has been spoofed. You do not need to report it to UU or to Melissa Lears mentioned in the email.
