WeTransfer Email Phishing Scam

Be aware of an email phishing scam involving a fake WeTransfer notification that someone has sent you files to download.  First off, the person sending you the files is probably your own email address.  Secondly, the return address is fake, as you can clearly see below.  Check carefully to see if the file transfer is legit.  Forward the false emails to support@wetransfer.com if you receive them.

I use WeTransfer to send files and it’s a great service.

    I am unable to send very large files with WeTransfer. A service called Binfer allows transfer without using the cloud. More about no cloud file transfers
