Well, it's genuinely at the UPS domain.    

Plus you could contact UPS tech support and verify it.

It's an epackage, not a package, it links to a pdf invoice made out to an address in PA, if that's you that might be more info than you want to post publicly.

Aside from posting what may be a private document of your business (or somebody else's), what we see here may not be what you see if you click on the link in your e-mail.

You should:
A - Get the links above removed from this thread, or have the thread removed entirely.
B - View the source of the e-mail message to verify if the link is actually what you see as rendered by your e-mail client and what you published here.
C - Check with UPS as recommended above.
If the source as seen in via step B above is the same as the link you see normally (and published here), then that points to a possibly valid message.  However, I would still follow up with UPS by chat or phone to verify that they are indeed using this method to send your company/person bills. BTW, another hint of validity or not is the e-mail address in the bill.

Unless you have made some previous arrangements with UPS, this is a scam and possibly a virus download.  I have received a lot of emails supposedly from UPS and they have all been scams.
