A confusing email is making the rounds, pretending to come from UPS, but carrying an attachment that supposedly contains an invoice from Amazon.
Here’s what the email entitled “We can not charge your credit card” looks like:
Your credit card was blocked.
We tried to withdraw money from your credit card, but your bank decline it. In the attachment you will be found a invoice from your last order. Please pay this invoice as soon as possible.
