Postmaster issues alert for bogus emails

-A A +A

Bedford Postmaster Denise Dewitt has issued a crime alert notice.

A number of postal customers have been receiving bogus emails regarding a package allegedly sent through the postal service. When the email recipient opens the email it activates a virus in their computer.

“We would like to warn people not to open the link,” Dewitt said. “The post office does not send notices of packages, nor do we charge for holding packages.”
