In America...USPS Warning Customers of Scam Claiming Delivery Failure.

The United States Postal Service is warning customers of an e-mail scam claiming a package delivery failure.

USPS says customers in the Twin Cities Metro and surrounding areas have reported receiving e-mails claiming the postal service was unable to deliver a package to their residence.  The e-mail includes a link to print a delivery label and instructions to take that label to their local post office.

USPS says if you click on the link your computer can become infected with a virus that logs keystrokes and can obtain personal information.

U.S. Postal Inspection Service is asking anyone that has received this fraudulent e-mail to forward it to spam@uspis.gov, and then to delete the e-mail.

USPS says they do not notify customers in this manner and that if you ever have a question about the delivery of your mail to call 1-800-ASK-USPS.
