Subject: FW: FYI / New Virus: UPS/FedEx/USPS






________________________________________



The newest virus circulating is the UPS/Fed Ex/USPS Delivery Failure.

You will receive an e-mail from UPS, Fed Ex, or USPS along with a packet number.

It will say that they were unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date.

It then asks you to print out the invoice copy attached.

DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS!

Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home.

This virus has caused Millions of dollars in damage in the past few days.


Snopes confirms that it is real.

I've been getting these for a couple of months...at least one a day.

When I got the first one I figured it was fake. If it was real wouldn't they have my name and not just my email?

I'm perplexed trying to understand why they would want to give one a virus. It is some high they go on infecting people? Do they attach something onto the software for some purpose?
I have no idea.
