Postal Service warns of bogus emails containing computer viruses
The United States Postal Services is warning customers about a bogus email claiming to be from the USPS that installs a virus on your computer.
The email claims a package delivery has been intercepted or the recipient has online postal charges. In order to check on the issue, the recipient must then click on a link. When they do so a virus is activated.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service advises recipients to delete the message before opening any links or attachments.
If you have questions about a delivery or wish to report spam, call 1-800-ASK-USPS or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
