be aware of bogus e-mails from the post office - I got one and when I checked on line this is what I found

Customers may be receiving email messages that allege to be from the U.S. Postal Service that contain fraudulent information about attempted or intercepted package delivery.

If opened, the messages instruct customers to click on a link to find out more about when they can expect delivery of their "package." Simply delete the message without taking any further action.

The Postal Service Inspection Service is aware of the problem and working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program.

We regret any inconvenience this may have caused our customers. For additional information on the virus or to report receipt of a message, please contact 1-800-ASK-USPS.

What gave mine away that it was bogus

1) PO does not have my e-mail addy
2) I did not mail a package on date they said
3) Why did they address it as Hello if I mailed a package they had my name
4) Why did I have to download a shipping label if I was picking up a package
5) Why did it have clutter at the bottom of the e-mail

will see if I can find the clutter that was at the bottom
