    Just checked my E-mail---Was informed by Manaager Bennet Purvis that DHL was unable to deliver a package containg a new 15" Apple i-mac. Please open the attachment. The first word of the message was Hello. Did not know my name. Nothing indicated it came from DHL. Lord only knows what would have happned if I opened the attachment? I hit delete.

    I'm not th Lord but I know what was in that attachment. One of those was opened at work and it contained over 70 different Trojans, malware and viruses. Took the IT guys several hours to clean two machines. DHL, UPS and FedEx never send emails unless you sign up for the service.

    Apple has not made a 15" iMac for years. Current model smallest screen is 21.5"

    I got one this morning from fed-ex. I guess with the holidays rapidly approaching the scammers are attempting to take advantage of us. The sad part is that I really am expecting a Fed-ex package. Kim

    DHL hasn't done any domestic shipping in nearly a year now. They only do the international stuff now.
