    Recieved this e-mail today supposedly fron Value Host web hosting, of which i have not got an account with.

    The attachment they talk of is an executable file, which has a trojan horse virus, and maybe others!

    Dear customer, We have received a notice from your card service stating that there was a chargeback made by the owner of the card thatyou paid for your account with. This is a very serious matter. I have deducted the amount of the chargeback, GBP 119.40,from your account and added our standard fee of GBP 25.00 as well. (Now you can see your payment details in attachment.) If there was some mistake, please let us know immediately so that we can get this situation resolved. We ask that you have the chargeback removed as soon as possible, as our account has already been debited for the amount in question. If you would prefer to make your payment using a new paymentmethod that would be fine as well (you can use a different credit card or you may send a money order payable toValuehost). This is a time sensitive issue and must be resolved promptly at the request of the card service. Please email the billing team using the Web Administration Panel with information about howyou are going to deal with this situation.I thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon. See your payment details in attachment. Sincerely,Mark J. BurnettValuehost Billing Department

    Any idea's? Anyone else get this e-mail? or do any members use valuehost?


    UPDATE- Just been on the ValueHost site, it is definatley a SCAM
