Does this itinerary show up in your SkyMiles account?

Also, Zone doesn't ever come over on an email receipt for a ticket.

Spam. Don't open the attachment that came with the email if it's like the one I got. Looks nothing like a delta communication so I didn't bother to even read it.

It's not from delta. Anyone can send an email and have the "from" line be whatever they want, such as the delta confirmation email. Spammers do it all the time with UPS, wells fargo, us air, etc.

Surely there is no way DL is intentionally sending you a scam email.



This happens a lot where large companies have spmmmers pretend to send emails on their behalf.

I've been getting similar spam purporting to be from AA for the last several months, usually with a zip file attached. Fortunately, I know enough to simply delete them. Lately, other Flyertalkers are reporting receipt of similar spam.

Whatever you do, never open the attachments. Ever.

It was not my mine email but, it was someone else. I think DL did send wrong email.

Right, I won't deal anymore spam email from Delta.

Hope this helps. My guess it's a phishing email.

I just hope this isn't a sign that Delta has been hacked and our customer account information released. Skymilesinsider, can you check with Delta on this?

Thanks

It isn't Delta that's doing it -- I've heard of similar messages.

I received a similar one that GMail automatically tagged as Spam & Phishing. Do not open; report to DL so they are aware of the phishing scam.

It's a Phishing scam.

Another one's going around with bills from Verizon Wireless with random figures like $1211.73. I almost freaked, but thought to call instead of click. It linked to a rogue web site in Sweden.
