Is an E Mail from UPS a scam?

I received a "do not reply" e mail from "UPS" saying they have a parcel which will be returned to sender in 10 days unless claimed. I did not open the receipt attachment. I suspect a scam. I will try to phone a local UPS agent as I do not know why they should e Mail me. Anyone seen this "scam"?

Yes, it's a phishing attempt, and a common one at that. The email is not from UPS, so I wouldn't bother phoning them - just delete it and get on with your life.

Are you expecting a parcel? - if not then it is likely to be a scam - it's not Christmas yet.
