E-mail Virus warning/Fed Ex

Got to share a warning. I just got an email from "Fed Ex" that I had a package delivered to the "post office"  and I had to print out a claim receipt.

Warning to my friends.      It's bogus, and a virus.      Don't open the claim receipt.

Fed Ex posted a warning on their website--see below.  But if you're not sure, don't click on the clink...write down the tracking/order numbers and check directly with Fed Ex, by phone or on-line.

You-all guys keep on keeping on (safely), and I'll try to do the same.
