I received an email today from "AGL Electricity" with the subject "Account Overview" (screenshot attached). It looked sophisticated and despite my usually suspicious mind I clicked on the "View Information" button. I was then offered to download "my bill" which was in an attachment containing a .ZIP file containing a file with the extension .JS - not a .PDF file as expected. My virus checker then had already flagged this file as containing a virus (screenshot attached)

Thanks for flagging @Resh_B. You are correct in assuming that this is a hoax email. Best to not interact any further and delete this from your server. Let us know if you have any questions.
I have had this one - the give away is in the Sender's email address, see from your picture below, FROM: AGL Energy Online [mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org] THIS IS NOT FROM AGL.
The Genuine AGL Bill is from email@example.com (although this may vary slightly with state or product)
