Postal service warns of bogus emails

Some postal customers are receiving bogus emails about a package delivery or online postage charges. The emails contain a link or attachment that, when opened, installs a malicious virus that can steal personal information from your computer.

The emails claim to be from the U.S. Postal Service and contain fraudulent information about an attempted or intercepted package delivery or online postage charges, according to a news release from the postal service.

The email instructs you to click on a link, open the attachment, or print the label. Postal Inspectors warn not to do anything the email tells you to.

Clicking on the link or opening the attachment will activate a virus that can steal information – such as your user name, password and financial account information.

The Postal Inspection Service advises people who receive the email to just delete it. They are working to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program, according to the release.

For information on the spam issue, call 1-800-ASK-USPS or email spam@uspis.gov.
