Canada Post warns of fraudulent email
Canada Post is warning its customers of a fraudulent email disguised as a delivery notification identifying itself as having been sent from Canada Post. The email states that Canada Post is trying to deliver a package and provides further directions for the recipient to open an email attachment in order to proceed with the package delivery.
Canada Post says the email is a fake and likely contains a virus or other malware. Recipients are being strongly cautioned against opening the attachment.
Additionally, Canada Post said that if a tracking number is provided in the email, you can check separately at the agency’s website. If it comes up as invalid, then the tracking number is a fake and the email should be deleted.
