Express Services Notification Email Virus Scam.

Another scam email titled "Express Services notification" is currently doing rounds. 

The mail contains an attachment purporting to contain information about a parcel (allegedly sent to your home address) and its tracking number. 

Now if you receive such emails, I would advice you not to download the (ZIP) file attachment as it contains a potentially harmful virus, which might install on computer once you un-zip the contents of the attachment. It is also apparent that mostly Yahoo users have been targeted by this scam. 

Safety tip : Always keep your anti-virus updated to protect yourself from such threats and attacks.

An example email is reproduced below :

Important Information!

Dear customer.

The parcel was sent your home address! And it will arrive within 3
business day.

More information and  the tracking number are attached in document

Thank you!
Best regards.
