    I get stuff like that all the time. It's just scam! As soon as you open and click on the link they steal all your information on your computer. Never open them. If you have a package that needs delivery then the company will contact you by phone or leave a note on your door. Never fall for the email contact.

    About a month ago, I got a e-mail - suposedly from UPS -saying that a package I had mailed could not be delivered & to respond. As I don't use UPS, I called them. The e-mail was not from UPS & I was told to forward it to - I think it was fraud@UPS.com

    If you Google UPS email scam you'll find a lot of talk of virus going around.

    YES!!! Big scam. I get at least 5 emails a day for stuff like that. I have been tempted to change my email, but I have had the same one since I started email back in 1988! So I just hit delete, delete, delete....

    I believe those are some sort of scam, I've gotten a couple over the last year.. I delete them right away. You generally know when you ordered something.

    never open anything with an attachment unless you personally know the sender, and even then, be careful.

    Yup...I had to change all my passwords etc. the other day.
    Got a supposively email from my SIL asking me to be her freind on a site like "facebook"...dummy me not wanting her to be insulted if I didn't make her my friend said yes...Well you can imagine...a few hrs later I get an email from her saying they were hacked...and not to open the email. So I immediately changed everything and hoped I got to my stuff in time...so far so good.
