Scam Description

I received a text from 61434539424 claiming to be USPS, stating the following:
“U.S.P.S – The package has arrived at the warehouse and cannot be delivered due to incomplete address information.Confirm your address at the link. https://authority-ustesters.top.”
I was expecting a package from overseas, so in my haste I provided my name, address, phone, and email. However, at the next page it asked for payment for a “redelivery attempt” and knowing that is not something USPS would do, I immediately backed out. The website address/link is obviously fake looking, after looking at it directly, but the actual website it takes you to mimics USPS actual website frighteningly well, with the same graphics, font choices, etc etc. Plus it gave a tracking number, US9524901144737, that looks relatively real, but once you google it it shows up on several websites that track fraud.
