Fraudulent USPS Package Alerts Being Sent by E-mail
It goes on to say, "The fraudulent message claims to be from the U.S. Postal Service and misleadingly states that it has information about an attempted or intercepted package delivery or online postage charges. The scam e-mail instructs you to click on a link or open an attachment.
Part of the message says, "If the parcel isn't received within 30 working days our company will have the right to claim compensation from you for it's keeping in the amount of $14.73 for each day of keeping of it."
If this e-mail scam lands in your inbox do not reply or click on any links or attachments, and delete the message. On its website, the USPS writes that "The Postal Inspection Service is working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program."
