Postal E-Mail Scam Hits Central Illinois
(Undated) -- People who live in central Illinois have become victims of a Postal Service e-mail scam. Many are receiving e-mails that say the Postal Service has a package waiting and want you to print out a shipping label. Once the link is clicked on, a malicious virus is released into the computer and personal info is stolen. U.S. Postal officials say they will not send an e-mail if they have your package, but will leave a notice in your mailbox.
