USPS Delivery Problems Notification Scam

USPS Delivery Problems Notification Scam

United States Postal Service (USPS) customers are asked to be on the lookout for fake "Delivery Problems Notification" messages like the one below, which claim there is some delivery problem or an email containing confidential personal information was sent to you. Some of the fake emails contain links to spam and phishing websites.

Therefore, United States Postal Service (USPS) customers should always go directly to and sign into their accounts from there, instead of clicking on a link in an email message that may take them to a fake website.
