I attached a snap shot here to show the email as to what it looks like. If you get this type Email virus with attachment do not open the attachment. It is a zip file and USPS does not send these emails. I made a purchase on ebay and somehow this lowlife tried to suck me into a delivery problem. Of course I was curious being I had not gotten delivery yet. I could have very easily opened this email attachment if not experienced with previous attempts. Dead give away is sender is from UK. USPS from UK. I don't think so. Zip file for invoice? I don't think so. My virus software picked it up but did not clean it. SOPHOS virus software is from UK. Now I wonder what the heck is going on. So please forum gasser brothers do not fall for this virus.

Thanks Mario! I'm guilty of deleting good emails occasionally, as I'm spooked and would rather error the right direction.

But I have noticed there's a problem here at the forum also lately. My computer browser locks up often, and sometimes it takes me 3-4 tries to respond to a thread. I contacted the techs here to see if they can check it, and tell me if there's something causing it here. It's not an issue at any other forums I look at.
If anyone else has noticed a slow browser, or issues with the site not operating smoothly, let me know.

The thing is with this crafty lowlife I was expecting delivery. I could have very easily opened it to look.

Spooked for good reason. Last summer a virus hijacked my company server. An office girl opened an attachment and bang it went right to the server from there.
