Warning! Fake "New BT Bill"

Warning! Fake BT Bill email circulatingYet another fake email alledgedly from BT this time suggesting my BT bill is for £556.27 and there is a link to download so I can view the bill.

Warning! Infected Fake My O2 Business email!

Warning! Fake O2 EmailLatest fake email I've received is alledgedly from O2 but of course this is untrue. The O2.com as sender is spoofed and does in fact come from sidegate{.]org and includes a file called JobResults.zip but of course it is neither a Zip or an invoice as suggested.
