I recently received an email supposed to be from Chase Bank claiming my 'supposed' account was detected with irregular activity and need to verify by downloading a file.

A. I,nor my work, have no association with that bank.

B. No, I didn't click on that link. I am not a noob haha


Following is the message of the email I received

Please download the file attached to this email, fill out the information required to review your account and press continue. We will review the activity on your account with you and upon verification, we will remove any restrictions placed on your account. Want to get more alerts? Sign in to your online banking account at Chase Bank and within the Accounts Overview page select the "Message Alerts" tab.

2 characteristics of this email

1. There are no sender I can identify. (Sender section is completely empty)

2. Attached file is an .html file. Which i believe it is direct link to download execution file of the ransom-ware. 

If anyone has further information of this.Please let me know.

If anyone is interested in to get hold of the html link PM me.
