Surprise E-Package

Beware of scam emails claiming to come from  postal or courier companies stating that you have a parcel waiting for collection.  The only surprise you’ll get if you open one will be malware (computer nasties) hitting your machine.  These include ‘ransomware’, which wrecks your laptop until you pay an overseas firm to ‘repair it’ and ‘trojans’ which record every keystroke, looking for 16 figures in a row – almost certainly a credit or debit card number.
