AT­TACK VEC­TOR: Emails from de­liv­ery com­pa­nies like DHL, Fed/ex and UPS THE SCAM: A com­pany emails you to say it tried but failed to de­liver a pack­age–and asks you to click a link to have it re­de­liv­ered.

Gram­mar and spell­ing er­rors FEAR FAC­TOR: $$ or $$$$$–if you ac­tu­ally click on the link
