A warning about a virus likely lurking in your email tops Wednesday’s consumer news.

The subject may read "Passing of Your Friend."

When you open it, you may see what looks like an actual funeral home in Texas--a legitimate business with a legitimate name.

But the email is a fraud, according to snopes.com.

If you click on the hyperlink, it will take you to a zip file, and a destructive virus will infect your computer.

If you see this email, you should delete it immediately.
