stating that they couldn't deliver a parcel but they have attached a label for you to print out to pick up your item - DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT IT A VIRUS.

FROM DHL WEBSITE
A message to our customers about a spam message and new virus
Please be advised that if you received an email suggesting that DHL is attempting to deliver a package, requesting that you open the email attachment in order to affect delivery, this email is fraudulent, the attachment is a computer virus, and the package does not exist.

Please do not open the attachment. This virus does not originate from DHL. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Maybe I'm speaking with the wisdom of age, but emails like this should always set alarm bells ringing - there shouldn't be people saying "Gosh! I nearly opened that attachment".

If anyone gets an email from anywhere that they weren't expecting, with an attachment that the email says has to be opened or downloaded, then 99.9999999% of the time it's a spam email with a virus.

Stop and ask yourself "Did I order something from this company? Did I send a package via this company? Am I expecting anything to be sent via this company?"

But the most important question to ask is "Why on earth would a company contact me out of the blue & tell me to download something to my PC in order to effect delivery???"

Similarly, if an email purports to be from ebay/paypal/your bank & asks you to follow a link provided in the email to reactivate/confirm/reset your account details then 100% of the time it's a spam email.

Similar going the rounds from UPS.

As suggested, don't ever open a link from any email that you are not expecting.
