Today I found an email in my Gmail account's Spam folder from ALTS Translation Services - a company I have worked with before and whom I had a good experience with.

However, the text in the email was as follows:

"Hello

I just attached the pictures and the document for the transactions such as invoice and others .Click here to view

kind regards

Thank you

Translation Team

NZQA & NZTA (LTSA) Approved Translation Service

Website: www.alts.co.nz Email: alts@alts.co.nz"


The "click here" was a hyperlink to a photography website, and when I Googled the page without accessing it from the link, I was warned that it was likely a web forgery designed to get personal information from me.

I think ALTS itself obviously was hacked, and any similar emails from them should be reported to the actual company.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like Hacking/Pishing Feb 24, 2015

Thank you, Thorin, for posting this.

In case I receive an email from the company, I will inform them immediately. Did you submit a support request here on ProZ.com regarding this fraudul activity? They can issue a Spam alert.

Stay safe!
