UPS/FedEx/DHL Virus E-mail

We have been seeing a UPS/FedEx/DHL e-mail going around the last few months that is a virus. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT. Please just delete the e-mail. It says something similar to the below example:

"Your Tracking # 0280957051" It contained an attached file titled "UPS (54KB)"

"Sorry, we were not able to deliver postal package you sent on April the 13th in time because the recipient s address is not correct.
Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.
If you do not receive package in ten days you will have to pay 6$ per day.

Your UPS"

This is a bogus e-mail! So, even if you are expecting a package or sent one to someone remember that UPS/FedEx/DHL will never send you files in a zip document (.zip). And if you are tempted to open the file because you think it is legit, please call UPS/FedEx/DHL BEFORE you open it! It will save you a ton of time and a big headache, I promise!
