I could comment on the latest election in Massachusetts… bizarre result. Ted Kennedy is rolling over in his grave… but no— I have a more pressing issue to discuss.
Within the last week or so I have received at least three emails, supposedly from UPS (United Parcel Service) or DHL (duh?) telling me a package was unable to be delivered to my address. They supply a tracking number and a zip file is attached. The message claims it is the shipping label and …. well here’s the message…
Hello! 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!
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. DHL Delivery Services.
Sorry – all the red flags just went up. At first it looks legit, but then notice the misspellings! And besides that I am not expecting a package. I think this is a total scam and once I click on that attachment my computer is going to be hacked!
If you get one of these messages dump it right away. DO NOT open the attachment. Or forward the email to DHL or UPS and let them know this stuff is out there.
Beware. Anyone else get these emails? Am I the only one? The Wackos Abound!
