Yes, a friend had one last week and opened the attachment as he was expecting a DHL delivery that day.

It really screwed up his PC even though he had McAfee on it.

Be very wary!

I get all sorts of them too, supposedly from various carriers - & we get things delivered by UPS/DHL/FedEx quite a bit

so far - I haven't opened a dodgy message

Yep, 3 day before yesterday and two yesterday!

Luckily I didn't open the ZIP file.

We're also getting dodgy emails from;
  • nationwide email address
  • purporting to be from abbey
  • has the Santander logos

declaring that we have had too many failed online log-in attempts so please go to this site and enter them all again ... Duh!!!!!!!

Telefonica must be selling email addresses and other information to spammers.Telefonica have always mis-spelt my name in a very unusual way, and it is this name that appears in the spam emails. I have since dumped Telefonica - but I still keep receiving the emails.
