I receive a text from USPS saying I gave 2 packages coming and to click on a link so I can follow delivery in real time. When I do it takes me to what looks like Amazon’s site where I win a prize! Once you start playing along and you win this fabulous prize for $1 that’s when they start asking for personal and banking information.

USPS Scam

On April 17, 2021, at 8:46 a.m. PDT, from an unknown individual claiming to work for the U.S. Postal Service. The message, written in poor English, stated that the USPS needed to change the delivery time of a package I had ordered, and invited me to click on a link the individual provided in order to change the delivery time.

FRAUD INDICATORS:

1. I was not expecting a package that would have required a special delivery time.
2. The phone number from which the call originated does not belong to the USPS,
3. The link provided in 5he message does not belong to the USPS.

The phone number used to send the text message is supposedly from Delaware although, of course, it could have been spoofed.
