  • Scam Alert

    Residents of our area are receiving an e-mail that looks like it’s coming from the Post Office - USPS.com. It says their courier couldn’t make the delivery of a parcel to you on X date. It then prompts the person to print the label and show it to the nearest post office.

    All of the e-mails have a different subject line, but they all have something that says click to “make a shipping label.” This is a scam - do not click to make a shopping label.
