Customers may receive e-mail messages that allege to be from the U.S. Postal Service that contain fraudulent information about attempted or intercepted package delivery, according to a news release.
If opened, the messages instruct customers to click on a link to find out more about when they can expect delivery of their "package," the release said. Customers are advised to delete the message without taking any further action.
The Postal Service Inspection Service is aware of the problem and working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program, the agency says.
