Invoice scam

I have received e emails (all in my Junk folder) saying I owe money and to click on attachment (zip file), I've deleted emails, I don't know why I have received the emails. Are they Malware?

Re: Invoice scam

Almost certainly malware.  If you don't recognize the sender, or have no idea why you would be getting an invoice, delete the messages without opening the attachments.  If you think the emails might be legitimate, do not open the attachments but instead contact the company directly (don't click on any links in the email) to inquire if the invoice is valid.  This is still one of the primary ways that malware is delivered.  Don't even think about opening such an attachment.
