Scam targets U.S. Postal Service customers via email

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Postal Service is warning its customers about a scam.

Officials there say customers have been receiving bogus emails, claiming to be from the USPS, about a package delivery or online postage charges.

The emails contain a link or attachment that can install a virus on your computer if opened. Officials say that virus could steal your personal information.

Postal inspectors say, if you get an email like this, just delete it.

To report a postal-related scam, you can call 1-800-ASK-USPS or send an email to spam@uspis.gov.
