Computer Virus Scam Involving US Postal Service


The Fairfield Police Department was contacted today by officials with the US Postal Service.

This agency is documenting increased incidents of a computer virus scam in the Fairfield area.

Subjects are reporting that they are receiving emails advising it is from the US Postal Service and to open it to receive information about picking up a package. If anyone opens this email it will transfer a computer virus.

Officials with the US Postal Service confirmed their agency never sends notifications by email.

It is recommended all citizens immediately delete emails that appear to be from the US Postal Service or the US Mail. Officers at FPD want to thank the US Postal Service for their notification to protect Fairfield area citizens.

FPD officers appreciate the ongoing support from the media in our area and the assistance given to our citizens by relaying this information.
