I was a customer of yours not too long of a while back, so apparently, whoever has access to your system has compromised at least the e-mail and shipping/billing address portion
FWIW, I checked my last order from you guys (April, 2010), and this spoof e-mail was configured properly, exactly as one of your online invoices would be configured.
I tried calling your IPD offices tonight, but it's already too late (the e-mail appeared in my inbox at 8:02 PM, EDT, which means that your offices just closed on the west side.
I also sent an e-mail regarding this to your "firstname.lastname@example.org" actual address.
Thank you for your attention.
Who still uses COD?
