Postal Customers: Beware Of Bogus Email

Last updated on Thursday, May 3, 2012

(BEDFORD) - Some postal customers are receiving bogus emails about a package delivery or online postage charges

According to Bedford Postmaster Don Chasteen the e-mails contain a link or attachment that, when opened, installs a malicious virus that can steal personal information from your PC.

The e-mails claim to be from the U.S. Postal Service and contain fraudulent information about an attempted or intercepted package delivery or online postage charges.

Chasteen warns do not click on the link or open the attachment. If you do you will activate the virus - that can steal information - such as your user name, password, and financial account information.

Delete the message.

he Postal Inspection Service is working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program. If you have questions about a delivery or wish to report spam, please call 1-800-ASK-USPS or email spam@uspis.gov.
