Watch out for malware email from ‘Flanderijn’

11 October 2017

Scammers are sending out fake emails posing to come from collection agency Flanderijn bv. The messages contain malicious software.

The agency has nothing to do with the mails, which claim that recipients are due a certain amount of money. Recipients are told they can find more information about the demand in ‘a file attachment’. Watch out: the attachment is nothing more than a link to malicious software.

The subject of the email reads: ‘Re: aangekondigd beslag’ (‘announced seizure’). Here’s an example (click to enlarge):

Our advice
Ignore this email. It has been crafted by criminals who are looking to steal your money.
