    Exclamation *** please don't fall for dhl/ups e-mail virus ***

    I don't want to have to YELL at you, after the fact!

    Just received an e-mail with a zip file attachment: supposedly, a package I sent around Christmas didn't make it to it's addressee, due to incorrect address.

    A Google found this to be mostly re:DHL; mine was UPS. It would be EASY to fall for this, cuz many people send stuff via UPS during the holiday season.

    Anyway, if you get one of these e-mails and you unzip the attachment, you are in for A WORLD OF HURT.

    (Bah, humbug!)
    ;)

    "Please tell us you DIDN't open it up!"

    Nah, I didn't. :P I'm really keen on scamming the scammers, but this looks like one of those things that got sent from someone's infected pc.

    I don't think I have gotten anything like this so far, but I only open attachments from people I know. I also didn't send out anything for Christmas so I would think it was strange.

    Hopefully virus software will pick it up though. I'd hate to be unprotected.
