Note that for virus scam reports, we may not publish all versions of the same type of emails that are distributed within a specific period of dates.
All emails with the similar but not exactly the same content, but with an attachment, could possibly contain the infected file. The recommended action is to delete these mails.
Do not go around tracing, “my email has a tracking number of 1234, is yours the same?”, “my email is dated Jan 15, is yours also the same date?”, etc. Be smart, scammers do not send repeatedly send the same mails using the same content. Remember, their objective is to break through the automated spam filters which follows “certain rules” of its maker to detect a spam. So the senders may change the content to penetrate the filtering mechanism.
