Post Express Office. Your package is available for pick up-email

This is just one of the email scams almost everyone is receiving recently, so if you got this email, do not open the attachment as it usually has a virus or a tracker to track down everything you have been to online and anything you have installed on your computer and send it to the third party which is the one who sent you the email, he or she will then get your personal information including bank details and passwords and steal everything you got through this! So be very careful.

I have here copy of the said email, but of course without the virus, just to let everyone know what the email looks like:

Post Express Office. Your package is available for pick up. NR9243556

Thanks for the warning! I do hope that nobody will be victim of this scam. I always received this message on my yahoo inbox. One time I download the file but I didn't open because adobe are not yet installed on my computer that time. After receiving this kind of mail so many times I already know that this is scam. I tried to block them but I don't know how.
