The U.S. Postal Service is warning of a scan of fake email that you might receive.
It could say something like you have a deliver of a package. The email will have you click on link to enter in your information to confirm it. Then they have you download a file and open it. However when do that there is a virus that you activate it. Then this will scan for you user name , password , and financial account information. Then before you know it you accounts are empty.
If you think about it this way if they are having a problem with getting a package to you then how would they get your email address. This also apply to all shipping (FedEx , UPS and others)
If you get this type of email DO NOT click on any thing or link on the email.
Then next step you can do it
1. Forward the email to email@example.com
2. Then, delete the email immediately.
DO NOT click on any links in/respond to the email.
The Postal Service officials would never reach out directly to consumers
A few tips for spotting bogus emails are from anywhere:
1. Poor grammar and/or spelling errors;
2. The email states “immediate action”; and
3. The email request personal information under the guise of confirming information.
