Reports state hat only sixteen anti-virus softwares have detected the report in the mail as malicious and prevented people to become a victim of this scam.

Experts have started to work on this scam mail and more than thirty false websites of NACHA were tracked down by the Alabama University researchers. Officials of NACHA have warned people to ignore such emails and not to click on the link as it may contain the virus or malware.

According to the sources, common internet users will not pay much attention to the mail as they do not have to deal with ACH transactions. It has been stated that the mastermind behind this scam generally targets business organizations as the ACH transaction is quite important for business deals.
