Ooookay. So it's a phish or malware, right? Well, in this case floating over the links clearly shows an eonenergy.com domain, rather than something malicious. And at least E.ON have shown good practice by using their own domain rather than some random tracking domain that others do.
It's been a long time since I logged onto E.ON because these days I generate all my electricity from a secondhand Russian nuclear reactor plucked from a rusty submarine that I have buried under the lawn.
Logging on to my account gives this message..
It's probably 15 years or so since I registered on E.ON.. when I registered it was part of TXU, then PowerGen which then became E.ON. So if you have registered an account with any of those companies in the past decade and a half, then you might get this spam from E.ON, even if you closed your account a long time ago..
E.ON have posted some information about the cock-up and an apology here.
