(KTVI) – A new scam is causing problems for the U.S. Postal Service. Officials are investigating reports of fake postal emails and phone calls.

The email includes a message about an attempted or intercepted package delivery and asks you to click on a link or open an attachment to print a label.

But if you click on the link, a virus is installed.  Scammers making fake phone calls are using the same ploy asking you to give information for a package delivery.
