    I just got this email:

    Subject: Your Tracking # 79618742

    Dear Valued Customer

    Unluckily we can't bring your parcel that was sent on 16, June at the proper time as you indicated the wrong recipient’s address.

    You can take your parcel back at our office. To do this you should print the invoice -

    Good luck
    Your UPS

    almost seems like they got ahold of a list of forum members or something.

    I don't see the purpose if it's fake, why inform you of your phone and not ask for $250 deposit to send to Nigeria ? Amateurs :)

    I'm pretty sure the spyware that that link would install would net them more than $250 :)

    You want a toe, I can get you a toe. I can even get you a spoofed UPS e-mail from scammers.


    Everything is better with a picture.
