      Scam Emails Sent to Postal Customers

      GLADSTONE ?? The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is now warning customers about a fraudulent e-mail. The faulty emails claim to be sent from the USPS, containing information about an attempted or intercepted package delivery. These e-mails include a link informing customers where they can expect delivery. Do not click the link.

      Gladstone Postmaster Michael A. French advises, ??If you??re not sure about the email you received, you can delete the message or contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.?? He later added, ??We want to keep our customers safe.??

      How to spot scam emails: The text contains poor grammar or spelling errors. The email states immediate action must be taken or customer could face dire consequences. The email requests personal information by re-confirming information. The text urges to ??click this link for details??.

      If you have questions or want to report a scam email, call 1-800-275-8777 or email spam@uspis.gov
