    I received an email from, Unity Technologies (unity-technologies@unity3d.com), with the following message.

    ------------

    Hello,

    Your invoice [the invoice] is available and attached as a PDF.

    Invoice Total Amount: 0.00 USD

    Thank you for using Unity!

    sincerely,
    The Unity Team.


    ----------------

    This is the message, and in it is a PDF attached. But I don't remember any invoice. Is this message real or a hacking scam?
     
  2. I'm guessing you're subscribed for some of the new multiplayer stuff? Like Relay and/or Lobby?

    I also got today the notification from google workspaces that it sees it as phishing:

    • Summary: Google detected and reclassified 1 message(s) from unity-technologies@unity3d.com as phishing post-delivery. These messages were not opened and have been removed from recipients' inboxes. There was 1 recipient(s).
    • Activity date: Freitag, 13.10.2023, 06:47:54 (UTC)
    • Actor: unity-technologies@unity3d.com
    • Total messages: 1

    When I open the PDF inside the browser it looks like a legit invoice for the position:

    Yup, use a virtual machine if you aren’t sure about the legitimacy of an email and you want to open the files linked.
