Sears / phishing attack

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I ordered a part through SearsPartsDirect.com. My anti-virus software blocked the acknowledgment e-mail as containing a phishing virus:
Phishing.Heuristics.Email.SpoofedDomain
MAIL FROM: em-bvqdhgyb9acem1axsrfftdxf35hqwm@m.e.searspartsdirect.com

I will never buy anything from Sears again. If there is a class action suit that encompasses all of Sears actions, let me know so that I can join.

    Phishing.Heuristics.Email.SpoofedDomain means your anti-virus program thinks it is a fishing attempt, but does not mean the message is a virus itself. This can be thought of as the message was blocked as being spam. Either the message from Sears was poorly formatted or your anti-virus was out of date or both. In any case, this can be thought of as a false positive.
