WARNING: HUGHESNET PHISHING SCAM

I didn't know where else to place this but I wanted to get it out. This isn't Data Managment but labels are limited. Not sure what else to do with it.

Openned my mail this morning, January 6, 2019, to find an email labeled from Hughes stating I needed to update all my information, of course, paying special attention to my credit card info. Some how it didn't seem right that Hughes would send me this request from 'MR-23@COX.NET'

It was the return addy at COX that was a bit of a tip off. I thought that while waiting for me to send my info these people might get bored so I forwarded a copy of the book 'Effective Feature Writing'. Actually, my virtual machine sent them 90,000 copies of the book and an attachment of MEMZ virus labled 'Credit/Bank'. What scammer can resist a peak at files that could maybe have something they want?

 

Hughes says they don't ask for credit card information like this but I could see someone falling for this.
