if i get a tracking number from a shipping company, i write the number down on a peice of paper, open up another window and go directly to the shipping companies website and enter the tracking number. if it's legit, it will show up on their website.

usually most companies i deal with when ordering parts and such, send me a tracking number and the shipper used themselves. so anything else would cause me to be suspicious.

I opened one of these links a while back, but I use ESET NOD32 ANTI VIRUS and it dropped the hammer on the email and its contents instantly. It identified the type virus and removed it. All I had to do was reboot. I have not had a virus get into my computer in 8 years since I started using ESET.
