I received this email yesterday - checked my bank account to be sure I wasn't charged. Glad to know it's a scam!

Our son lives in Georgia (military) but his bank account is here at home in Maryland. Last week we got a phone alert from his bank stating that suspicious charges had been made to his account for this 'click n 'ship". We filed a fraudulant charge sheet and he was credited. This is where it gets weird: today here in Maryland, we received an expensive Express Envelope that contained a sealed, Express Box inside. Both boxes were addressed to our son. My husband opened the inner box and it contained a double-endorsed check for $2,300 made out to a 3rd party. He drove straight to the Post Office and they said they are being flooded with these things. The scammers figure you are as dishonest as they are and seeing a double-endorsed check will cash it only to have it bounce weeks later costing you fees and possibly, police charges. The PO said they scammers make no money on this, they are only doing it to wreak havoc with people. This is serious, our son didn't 'click' on any links yet they were able to break into his account. Thank goodness we have a bank that's on top of these thigns.

I got one of these but it didn't have any attachments or links in it... not a very good phishing attempt.

If I opened on a MAC, found the dowloaded file, and trashed it, is that enough? What does the the virus do if in there?

I get these all the time in my junk mail and always deleted. What is disturbing to me today is that I checked a bank account online and saw 4 transaction to usps click n ship. Today is May 5th and the date posted is May 7th. I'm panicking because now I cant call my bank,usps etc until Monday. I have itunes, amazon linked up to this card, wondering if I got skimmed or some waitress wrote my number down. Atleast I dont keep alot of money in the account.

a good example would be amputating some of their fingers to make it harder to type.

I just received one today - when I tried looking at Order History, Norton blocked it. Thanks for this site.

Re blocking these emails: found a site called Dynamoo's Blog that lists IP addresses from which this phishing is being sent. I entered these in emailfinder.com to find the geographic source. 174.140.163.119 (Gardiner, Maine, USA) 50.116.19.155 (Invalid domain name -- maybe shut down already) You'd think with all our wonderful technology, we could pick up the people sending these and make an example of them.

I've received several of these over the past few weeks. Disturbingly, one today was addressed to an email account I only use with Intuit as a beta tester. How do they get these addresses?

I get these every day. Just put them in your Junk Email. Or, just ignore it. If you put your cursor over the link, you'll see that it's not the USPS. it goes to some other site.

so far, nothing that I know of, but I remain worried. I am considering taking it to a computer service place to have it checked. Will let you know if I do. Thanks.
