Got mine. Cannot emphasize enough DO NOT OPEN THE ZIP FILE! Craig is aware of this and working his buns off trying to control any damage it might cause to the site and/or us. 

This scam we are experiencing has also been mentioned in the Etsy forums. So any shops here that also have a shop on Etsy will hopefully get the heads up on this.

Hugs Craig.

Did you actually extract/open the zip file?

I don't know what its payload is.  All I can suggest is run a virus scan and malware.

Sorry.

Just received one from

enenlare1980

Sent copy to Craig and deleted the sender's message from my account. I never open a zip file, just not safe. I have firewall set up to not allow opening without jumping through many hoops.

Best advice is to run a complete virus scan a.s.a.p.

Hopefully Craig will notify sellers of this scam -- especially since it is being sent from different users/account names.
