USPS Imposter – Delivery Fee Scam

Total Dollars Lost
I have ordered several packages recently. I received a text message this morning from a team claiming to be from USPS Support. In the message, which I included in attachments, they claimed to not have a verifiable address to deliver my package. They requested I update my address, and pay (with a debit/credit card) a $0.30 redelivery fee. I did not pay the fee, as they already got my address I knew something was wrong because USPS doesn’t request any payment for redelivery. The website the message referred me to looked very legit. This is an easy scam to get a naive person’s personal and credit card information.
