Over the past few days I have recieved a number of extremely suspicous emails, which shocked me becuase I was nearly fooled by them.
I'd like to think of myself as being a pretty savvy email opener, but these scams are a lot more believable than "Your the relative of a Nigerian princess".
So, for your personal amusement/knowledge here are a couple of the emails I have recieved:
| From: info 4 <firstname.lastname@example.org> |
Subject: UPS notification
The parcel was sent your home address.
And it will arrive within 3 business day.
More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

At a glance, I was tempted to open the attachment though... then I remembered I live in the UK and have never recieved anything from UPS. :p
