You probably don’t think of the U.S. Postal Inspector as a super sleuth. In fact, the Postal Inspection Service is filled with good detectives and they are now on the trail of the “Package Waiting for You” scammers. This is another twist on the email phishing scam. This time, you get an email that claims there’s a package waiting for you because delivery attempts failed, or you owe money for postage. The email instructs you to click on the link to open an alleged attachment or a print a label. It is completely fake and potentially damaging to you.
Don’t do it.
If you open the link you will allow a virus or malware to get into your computer to steal your personal information.
Postal inspectors advise that you just delete the email.
