UPS Shipping Virus

Please be careful with messages from UPS. A spam email with a virus attached has been making the rounds. The email looks exactly like a normal message from UPS. However, it has a file attached that it directs you to open. UPS will not send you attachments. The attachment is a virus. 

No attachment from anyone should be opened unless you knew BEFORE receiving the email that they would be sending you an attachment. If you were not expecting an attachment, confirm with the sender what it is before you open it.

Here's what the UPS spam and virus email says:

Subject: UPS Tracking Number 6431834482

Unfortunately we were not able to deliver postal package you sent on July the 1st in time because the recipient’s address is not correct.

Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office
