Your package is available for pickup Scam

Note that if you received this email " Your package is available for pickup" do not download or open any attachment as this is a virus!
The email looks like this with a downloadable attachment:

Dear customer.

Your package has been returned to the Parcelforce office.
Reason: Error in delivery address.
Please find the attached document containing detailed information about delivery failure.
Read all information carefully and come to the "Parcelforce Service" office to receive your package.

Thank you for using our delivery company.
Parcelforce Service.

What Parcelforce usually do when you got a package and you are not around to receive it, is that they leave a card on your mailbox that has all the information on how to collect your package.

I've received a mail purportedly from parcelforce too, with a attachment "28498.zip" - we're a company who receive regular parcelfoce deliveries, but I'm not opening it! This is the text of the email:


Dear customer.

A courier did not deliver the package to your address.
Reason: The delivery address is wrong
Information about your package is attached to the letter.
Read all information carefully and come to the "Parcelforce Service" office to receive your package.

Thank you.
Parcelforce Service.
