    Hi everyone,


    Is anyone else seeing these messages being sent just lately within the past week or so. that come from a new Hotmail domain each & every time, with each new message received.


    They are trying to promote a known crypto currency trading scam called Bitcoin Loophole, & the PDF file shows to be marked up as a phishing attachment when viewed in Gmail.


    I have received twenty of these exact themed messages within the past 5 days, & I cannot understand why Microsoft online safety seem to be doing nothing to prevent further new domains from being generated by this fraudulent perpetrator. The security team are suspending these accounts as they are reported, but something further needs to be done to prevent further new accounts from being generated by this fraudulent spammer.


    I suspect these messages are linked to the 'sexstortion' scam, where this perpetrator then sends a demand asking for a ransom to be paid into a Bitcoin wallet, or else they will send a some captured webcam footage of an indecent nature to all our contacts in our email account.


    What Microsoft security or technical need to do here, is to generate a program that searches for the pattern or footprint this perpetrator leaves, each time they generate a new domain to send this fraudulent abuse from. This is hardly rocket science, & Microsoft being at the front edge of software technology surely must have the resources to tackle this problem, as I feel it is now getting out of hand with the abundance of new messages of this nature I am currently receiving.


    I would welcome other folks views or similar experiences of receiving these similar themed messages just lately, & if they agree with my suggestions here, or could add any of their own, to help prevent this fraudster from currently abusing the Microsoft Hotmail infrastructure with this vile & potentially financially damaging content of extortion.


    Many thanks everyone.


    Best regards to you all.

    :)

    Opening of PDF files attached to emails sent to WP 7.5

    Yesterday a friend of mine sent me a PDF file attached to an email, but I could not open it in my Windows Phone 7.5 HTC Trophy 7, although I have installed the relevant application (Adobe Reader) in it. The same file (PDF Document) was immediately opened
    through my Nokia X7 phone (OS Symbian Belle). I must say that-recently (some weeks ago)-I did open (in my WPhone) such PDF files sent to me as attached files. Could somebody help me, please?

    Opening of PDF files attached to emails sent to WP 7.5

    I have no problems opening attached PDF files on my phone. Could you please include some more information, for example if there were any error message when you tried opening the PDF?
