BEWARE OF SPAM! BOGUS DELIVERY MESSAGES E-MAILED TO POSTAL CUSTOMERS
Some postal customers are receiving bogus e-mails about a package delivery. The e-mails contain a link that, when opened, installs a malicious virus that can steal personal information from your PC.
The e-mails claim to be from the U.S. Postal Service and contain fraudulent information about an attempted or intercepted package delivery. You are instructed to click on a link to find out when you can expect your delivery. But Postal Inspectors warn: Do not click on the link!
Like most viruses sent by e-mail, clicking on the link will activate a virus that can steal information-such as your user name, password, and financial account information.
What to do? Simply delete the message without taking any further action. The Postal Inspection Service is working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program.
If you have questions about a suspicious postal email or wish to report spam, contact the Postal Inspection Service at email@example.com.
