This is not Phishing nor is it malware related.  It is a variation of a Tech Support scam in the name of Malwarebytes.  You are now the 4th forum member to post about this scam.

Please Reference:

Phishing is a process masquerading as a known entity where a web site, a PDF or other document uses content that emulates that entity and tries to get the victim to provide login credentials or Personally Identifiable information (PII).  For example a compromised web Site may have content that looks like the legitimate Login for USAA.  However, it is all about harvesting a victims USAA account credentials.

Hi @Rajdaj!!

Thanks for sharing this. As pointed out by @David H. Lipman, this is a known tech support scam that is using the Malwarebytes name in an attempt to trick users. These sorts of scams are sadly common and have used our name and other major technology company names in the past.

With that being said, our research team is doing whatever we can to combat these scammers, but the best advice is to ignore/delete these emails and remember that we would never legitimately send an email like this.
