NACHA - "ACH Payment Cancelled" Email Virus Scam

An email purporting to be from NACHA – The Electronic Payments Association is currently being fraudulently circulated to unsuspecting individuals and corporations. The mail claims that a certain payment has been cancelled and induces readers to download the attached ZIP file for details of such cancellation.

In this regard I would like to point out that the said attachment hosts a malicious software / Virus capable of causing harm to your system and/or tracking your information. 

You are therefore advised not to "open attachments or follow Web links in unsolicited emails from unknown parties or from parties with whom you do not normally communicate, or that appear to be known but are suspicious or otherwise unusual."

It needs to be clarified that "NACHA itself does not process nor touch the ACH transactions that flow to and from organizations and financial institutions. NACHA does not send communications to individuals or organizations about individual ACH transactions that they originate or receive."

Follow this link to learn more from the official NACHA website : 

The mail I received has been reproduced for your information :

recently initiated from your checking account (by you or any other person),
