"We were unable to deliver a package to you today" of Salem MA

There is a flurry of SPAM emails going out that state they are from USPS or FedEx, or UPS etc. The body of the email will claim that they attempted delivery of a package to your home/office but you were not there. They then state you have to open the attached .ZIP file and fill out a form in order to get your package. Once you open the .ZIP file it downloads malware to your machine.

USPS, FedEx, UPS etc never send an email with a .ZIP attached for you to open in order to complete a delivery.

This scam runs year round, but really picks up steam starting in November to take advantage of the fact that many of us are sending & receiving packages from on line Christmas shopping.

Here is a recent article about this subject.

Think before you click!

Thanks for reading,
