U.S. Postal Warning: Text From Postal Service Is A Scam. Don’t Click!

Have you received a text mes­sage from the Unit­ed States Postal Ser­vice (USPS) claim­ing you have an unclaimed pack­age? Don’t click the link! It’s a scam!

In this video, USPS Inspec­tor Andrea Avery explains how this inter­na­tion­al phish­ing scheme works and how to pro­tect your­self from it. Click­ing on the link in the text mes­sage will give the scam­mers access to your per­son­al infor­ma­tion, which they can use to steal your iden­ti­ty or bank account details.

Your phone or sys­tem may also become filled with mal­ware. So don’t click the link and delete the text imme­di­ate­ly.
