Malicious emails

It has come to my attention that a number of emails are being sent claiming to be from the e-store,

There is no e-store at this domain, and these email are malicious in nature. Spammers use my, and other legitimate, domains at the bottom of their emails for a variety of reasons, including tricking people into believing it’s a legitimate email from a store owner. There is little that can be done from our end.

Please DO NOT open the attachment that accompanies such emails, it usually contains a virus. Simply delete and ignore those emails as you’d do with other forms of spam. If you have tried to open the attachment, please consider having your system scanned with an antivirus.

The following is an example of such a malicious email:

Dear Customer!

Your order: Nokia N85, was dispatched at your address. 
The tracking number of your postal parcel is indicated in the document attached to this letter.
