Did you receive an email from DHL telling you that they couldn’t deliver your package, and attached a zip file supposedly containing a label? Don’t open it! It’s a virus and will probably damage your computer.
The incarnation we saw today had a subject of Parcel is expecting of receiving?. The email arrived from DHL Customer Service (firstname.lastname@example.org). The body of the email reads:
Courier service couldn’t make the delivery of your parcel.
Reason:Address delivery doesn’t exist in database.
LOCATION OF YOUR ITEM: Moreno Valley
DELIVERY STATUS: sort order
SERVICE: Expedited Shipping
NUMBER OF YOUR PARCEL:U63238388895US
The label of your parcel is enclosed to the letter.
Print your label and show it in the nearest post office of USPS
An additional information
If the parcel isn’t received within 30 working days our company will have the right to claim compensation from you for it’s keeping in the amount of $13.40 for each day of keeping over limited time.
You can find the information about the procedure and conditions of parcels keeping in the nearest office.
Thank you for your attention.
Do not download or open the attached zip file. It is not a label and will infect your computer with a virus. If you are waiting for a package from DHL, call them directly. This is not how they would handle such a situation, by the way. You may run across other incarnations, such as from UPS, Fed Ex, or the USPS.
