Booked a flight with Qantas about a week ago now I'm getting spam in the name of Qantas.

How did they know I'd booked a flight with Qantas and how did they get my email address ?

Called Qantas security in Sydney they said there's a virus on the web and they are aware of it, I told them Qantas have the virus not the internet and they should fix it.

They somehow got into their system and now can target their customers
Quite a nasty breach of security

I donated to the Red Cross online after the Tsnunami... next minute I bought $1200 worth of train tickets in Italy for people I will never get to know.... fortunately it was refunded very quickly.

Email hoax hits Jetstar customers
 

Jetstar is warning its customers that some people have been receiving fake emails that contain false information and a computer virus.
 
The airline has a recorded message on its phone line now telling people to disregard and not open any email sent to them with an attachment.
 
Tim Wilson says he booked a flight with Jetstar last week, and received the suspicious email yesterday morning.
 
"It said my flight was cancelled and that there would be a $70 change fee and that's what alarmed me, so I was able to call the landline and get through and I was told to the contrary.," he said.
 
"I know there's a hoax and I know my flight is confirmed."

Jetstar says it is an scam affecting several other companies, and that their security system has not been compromised.

If the security system hasn't been compromised how did the scammer get the email addresses of Jetstar customers.......it seems straight after they booked. :rolleyes:
