(WKBN) – The United States Postal Service is warning of a scam that could give your computer a virus.

A fake email is being sent telling you that the Postal Service has a package for you. The email asks that you download an attachment to confirm your delivery information.

Do not download this attachment. It’s a virus that will steal your passwords and financial information, according to USPS.

Don’t respond to the email either, and delete it immediately.
