I, Dulcie, have the following thoughts/comments on this suspected fraudulent email message from “email@example.com”:
I keep receiving emails from “Absa Bank” which I firmly believe is not from Absa.
I could be wrong, but it is better to play it safe, to ensure that no one harms the image of Absa.
I do not have an account with Absa.
the attachment that was attached is in a format that cannot be attached and I have no idea how to change it.
