United Parcel Service Notification Email Virus

Another spam email titled "United Parcel Service 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 against downloading and up-zipping the (ZIP) file attachment as it contains a potentially harmful virus! I would also clarify that such emails are not sent by UPS .

The email I received is reproduced below. Do note the spelling mistakes and the fact that the same mail has been sent to numerous other recipients.
