    Received an e-mail from UPS.com today & this is what it said (see below). As I mail a lot, I was curious, but I don't use UPS. I was tempted to open the attachment, but instead, I called 1800 PICK UPS & they informed me to not open the e-mail & forward it to fraud@UPS.com



    Dear customer!
    We were not able to deliver the package which was sent on the 12th of January in time
    because the recipientís address is not correct.
    Please print out the invoice copy attached and collect the package at our office.

    UPS Express


    Sure glad I did not open it. Here is what Snopes says:

    I won't open anything from anyone I don't know. I get those on facebook too and decline and block. Wish I could blow a whistle in their phone. LOL.

    yes I had that happen to me when I signed up on facebook someone got my address book and E-mailed my family said that I was in the UK and I lost my wallet so I needed money. My son called me at 10:30 at night and asked me where I was ( because he knows I travel alot) I told him I was in bed and he told me about the e-mail he got from my email address. No more facebook for me. thanks for sharing with us nobody is safe anywhere
