Attention Chase users and non-Chase users

There's a new scam/spam going on, don't follow those instructions and don't download and run that html file under any circumstances.

The "From:" of the version I got clearly states: "Chase Service ", Chase's domain is chase.com, so why would they email you from nn.com ? In Yahoo Mail you only need to do a mouse over on the "From:".

Here's the content of the scam I got:

"Dear Customer,

There's also file attached, 168KB in size. That's a HTML script that I didn't have the guts to test on my PC. Just ignore it, mark it as spam or report it to Chase.
