I've recently gotten several emails with subjects like 'URGENT URGENT URGENT' and ' Ver Important'

The text inside was:
Quote
"GOT YOU"

If you were dumb enough to open this email then you will find a WORM has executed itself through your mailbox
and by the time you read this into your hard-drive. This is PAYBACK for the Virus you disguised in the email you sent
to us recently which destroyed our hard-drive and back-up system. This costs us thousands of dollars and we lost a lot
of irreplaceable files on our system.

Now it's your turn to have your computer infected. This WORM it is undetectable by AntiVirus software and it will drive your computer crazy because it's always hiding and causing havoc in your system. Using your computer recovery disks will not remove the problem cause it still stays on your computers Motherboard. This will proabably cost you a new computer and I sincerely hope this teaches you a lesson not to send people
nasty viruses again.

This also had what looked like 6 missing images below. My first thought was to delete with the other spam and virus-related emails received but then I decided to respond to them that I had not sent any emails to them at all and couldn't have.

I went to the www.evocash.com website to see who they were and saw that they seem to be having some sort of a problem over there. (look at warnings on that site)

Anyway, it doesn't seem to be a true virus threat and appears to have another purpose behind it.

Just curious, is EvoCash a well known organization?

The site seems to be down at the moment, but I've never heard of this company before.

Area code 767 is the Caribbean island of Dominica.

P.S. 449 is a valid CO prefix on the island, but the listed number does not appear to be in service. That doesn't really surprise me!
