Don't fall for "USPS Delivery Status Notification" ( phishing spam, scam

These emails are annoying because at first glance they seem legitimate vis a vis the subject line, "Delivery Status Notification." And the snippet: " notification." But look at the sender: Logistics Services, and that is the first hint of a spam/scam. Then look at the sender's actual email address: Czech sender re. a United States Post Office delivery? WTF. But who knows where the email really originated. Phishy!
In a poorly formatted email, here's the content: Notification

Your parcel has arrived at June 5th, 2014. Courier was unable to deliver the parcel to you.
Print your label and show it in the nearest post office to get a parcel. 

DO NOT click any of the buttons in the email!
