    Phony email from UPS
    Received this clearly phony email this morning. There is a .zip attachment that your suppose to open and print out a label.

    Yah, right. I need to print my shipping label in order to pickup my package. They don't have my home address, but they have my email address. Too funny.

    The second dead giveaway was the bad english.. Please attention!.

    Lord knows that's in that attached zip file.

    Dear customer!

    The courier company was not able to deliver your parcel by your address.
    Cause: Error in shipping address.

    You may pickup the parcel at our post office personaly!

    Please attention!
    The shipping label is attached to this e-mail.
    Please print this label to get this package at our post office.

    Please do not reply to this e-mail, it is an unmonitored mailbox.

    Thank you.
    United Parcel Service.

    I get something along the same lines about once a week. All my mail goes through Google though and I just get a message from them that it was stopped at their servers because of a virus in the attachment.

    I can't believe people still fall for these things.

    I got one today, I didn't open the attachment - just deleted immediately.
    Figure that as their customer they would at least know my name.

    I also got a message that I won $1,000,000,

    Another I inherited a fortune from a diamond mine in Africa.

    Must be my lucky day!
