The United States Postal Service said today that they will delay its plan to cut delivery of the mail to 5 days saying restrictive language in Congress temporary government funding prohibits the new schedule.
The U.S. Postal Service said it will hold off on the plan until legislation is passed that provides the U.S. Postal Service with authority to implement a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule.
The plan to start 5 day delivery was set to start on August 5th 2013.
United States Post Office Inspection Service warns of fraudulent customer emails!
The United States Postal Inspection Service wants to alert you about fraudulent emails sent to postal customers.
The sent emails claim to be from “USPS Global,” “Global Services” or “USPS customer services.” These emails inform customers that a package is being held for them and they will be charged for each day the package is unclaimed. The fraudulent email also gives customers an invalid label reference number. If you get one of these emails, DO NOT click the URL link! When clicking on the URL accompanying this number, a virus infects their computers.
Postal employees have been receiving complaints about these emails and have been apologizing for any inconvenience and assure customers that the emails are not from the Postal Service. Customers also should be informed that the United States Postal Inspection Service already is aware of the fraudulent messages.
If you would like like to report further fraudulent issues you can do so by notifying the Inspection Service by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
