I can’t believe that a somewhat savvy friend of mine asked me about this message. He was actually considering opening it. Some people will fall for anything. The first thing is that this message is very poorly written. Anyway, please inform your family and clients that this is bogus and contains a malware attachment called UPS.zip that will infect their computers with a Trojan horse program. It usually arrives with a subject “United Parcel Service notification <number>”

Dear customer.

The parcel was sent your home address.
And it will arrive within 3 business day.

More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

Thank you.

Just delete it upon receipt.
