Latest package delivery scam involves USPS, sheriff’s office warns
JENA, La. (Gray News) - Authorities in Louisiana are getting the word out about a scam involving the U.S. Postal Service.
The LaSalle Parish Sheriff’s Office reports it has become aware of a scam where residents receive a text message that appears to be from the postal service stating that there is a problem with a delivery.
If clicked, the link will take the user to a site that appears to be a USPS website that asks for credit card information to have the package delivered for a fee.
Authorities said this is a scam, and the postal service does not operate in such a manner.
The sheriff’s office urged all residents not to click on these links or follow such fraudulent text messages.
