Good day to all. I just wanted to include a word of caution, especially to newcomers, & those who are not yet tech-savvy. While this is not a new technique to install a virus, or constitute a 'Fraud Alert,' there is yet another attempt to use DHL (or UPS, etc.) to prey on the unsuspecting & innocent. I just got another:
DHL Delivery Problem NR 46458608

And here is some info I researched from DHL, (originally posted on Feb 19, 2009):
"In recent months, the DHL name has been used in a series of fraudulent email scams, commonly referred to as “Phishing”. One such email suggests that DHL is attempting to deliver a package and asks the recipient to open the email attachment in order to affect delivery. These emails are not authorized by DHL – their authors are only using the DHL name in their message to grab the user's attention and lend apparent legitimacy to the emails. An example of such an email can be found at the end of this communication.
DHL recommends emails not be opened if identified as being “from” DHL, and one or more of the following is the case:
• You have received an email without a tracking number and you are not doing business with DHL.
• The email has an attachment and you are not aware that you are doing business with DHL
• The email instructs you to open an attachment for the tracking number
The recipient of a questionable email containing a tracking number can verify if a tracking number is valid by going to http://www.dhl-usa.com/home/home.asp and inserting the tracking number into the “Track It” box. If nothing returns, it is not a valid tracking number and the email referencing the tracking number has not been sent by DHL.
Further information on how you can protect yourself against “Phishing” scams can be obtained from the Department of Justice at the following link:
After posting this I saw the "Recent Posts": “UPS Delivery Problem”? Watch out for scam e-mails!
So sorry for any redundancies
However, it just shows the prevalence of these kinds of malware attacks!
Gmail is da-bomb dude! Like, totally tubular man…
