Scam Description

I received a text message from 1(424)599-0490 stating “Your package cannot be delivered due to wrong house number. Please update your address online for re-deliver: https://usp-sczxn.top”. The link then took me to a USPS page where I entered my address. When I pressed continue, the link took me to a page where a re-direct fee was $3. I entered my debit card information.
However, when checking my bank account, the $3.00 was never taken from my account.
