A bogus email claiming to be from the U.S. Postal Service is circulating to some of its customers.
Postal inspectors say the email contains links and attachments that if opened, could activate a virus armed and ready to steal your personal and financial information. Officials warn customers to avoid clicking on the links.
To be on the safe side, the phony email should be deleted from your account immediately.
The Postal Service says it's in the process of resovling the matter, but offers the following tips on how to spot this inbox scam:
- The text contains poor grammar and/or spelling errors.
- The email states immediate action must be taken or the customer could face dire consequences.
- The email requests personal information under the guise of re-confirming information.
- The text from an "automated message system" states "Click on this link for details."
