Scam alert from U.S. Postal Service
PRINCETON — The U.S. Postal Service is warning customers to be aware of an email scam using the Postal Service.
On Friday, the U.S. Postal Service’s Corporate Communications spokesperson, Beverly Howard, said some postal customers are receiving bogus emails about an attempted or intercepted package delivery or online postage charges. The customer is instructed to click on a link, open the attachment, or print the label. But when opened, the link or attachment installs a malicious virus which can steal personal information from the customer’s personal computer, Howard said.
“The Postal Inspectors warn: Don’t do it!” Howard said. “Like most viruses sent by email, clicking on the link or opening the attachment will activate a virus that can steal information — such as your user name, password and financial account information.”
