An e-mail virus that was first reported this past summer has reappeared.

Vince Owens, supervisor of customer service for the Jefferson City Post Office, said they have been getting many calls in the past 10 days about an e-mail that talks about a package delivery.

“These e-mails come with official logos for the post office as well as other companies, such as Fed-Ex, UPS and DHL,” he said. “The e-mail tells people they have a package that was undeliverable and they can click on an attachment to get information about picking it up. If you click on the attachment, that (action) downloads a virus.”
