We want you to be aware of this fake emails and if you have received “CamScanner New Doc” email recently, here is what you should do:

- The sender address is your email address
- The subject: “New Doc 134 Page 3 “( random doc number, random page number).
- A malicious attachment: users maybe infected after clicking or opening it.
2. Do not open the attachments
To keep yourself and your colleagues away from such emails, report this problem right away to your company IT department and ask them to improve the email filtering mechanism.
3. What you should do if you opened the attachments
