An email claiming to be from Companies House is circulating this morning which has a zip file attached to it and within the zip file is a .exe file which if clicked on installs a virus on your computer.
The fake email looks as if it has genuinely come from Companies House and even gives the correct Companies House contact details within the email.
The theme of the email is a (CC01) Company Complaint.
If you receive an email like this with a zip file attached and a “.exe” file within the zip file you should delete it and report it to companies house via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Copy of the fake email is shown below.
