FedEx System Notification Email Virus.

Very recently I received an email with the subject "FedEx system notification", notifying me about some sort of parcel that was sent to my

The mail also contained an attachment purporting to contain information about the parcel 
and its tracking number. 

This made me suspicious primarily because 
  1. I had not ordered any such parcel.
  2. The same email was sent to a large number of persons.
I got the attachment examined and it did contain a VIRUS.

Now if you receive such emails I would advice you not to download the (ZIP) file attachment as it contains a potentially  harmful virus! I would also clarify that such emails are not sent by FedEx .

The email I received is reproduced below: 

Dear customer

The parcel was sent your home address
And it will arrive within 10 business days

More information and the tracking number
are attached in document below.

Thank You
