WARNING: Package Delivery Scam You May Find In Your Email In Box
The package delivery scam is alive and well and could be coming to an email inbox near you. With the holiday’s upon us, some consumers say the hackers are back.
One immediate identifying is the subject line. It could look something like this, “USPS Delivery Failure Notification.”
The advice is obvious. Don’t click the link. Should you click the link, it’s possible to open the door for a virus, which can enable scammers to steel your personal information, such as, but not limited to banking, usernames and passwords.
Should you get such an email, the first thing to do is to check on line with the carriers website, to see if there is a package on the way. Remember that you should never provide any personal or sensitive information to anyone.
You’ll also not want to respond to any questionable text messages and avoid calling back or responding to any unknown or ‘restricted’ telephone numbers.
