Honestly, do you really think companies will send e-mails like this to people who are not even clients of them? Would APEX-ACH have any reason to send e-mails about the testing of their new software to non-clients? The obvious answer to both of these questions is NO! Why waste valuable resources on recipients who will have no interest whatsoever in "the new security level in you system"? What did the scammers hope to achieve with an e-mail like this?
