Subject: UPS virus alert


It's apparently a real threat...
I did check this out before sending it and it is something that you might miss if you are busy and just not thinking at the time. With all the hustle and bustle of the season, this one is just a little sneakier………

With Christmas fast approaching . . . . . . . . . . .watch out for this... be alert..
Please read the following. It applies to FedEx as well, Thanks.
================================================
The newest virus circulating is the UPS Delivery Failure. You will receive an email from UPS Packet Service along with a packet number. NOTE: The word packet is mis-spelled on this line. It will say that they were un-able to deliver a package sent to you on such and such a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice copy attached. DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS! Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home. This virus has caused Millions of dollars in damage in the past few days.

Snopes confirms that it is real:
