Local Police warn of scammer emails

28 December 2020 Luray/Page County Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

Police departments in the region remind us to be on the watch for fake delivery emails.

The fraudulent delivery messages appear to come from legitimate sources but are actually from scammers.

Look for messages saying “your package cannot be delivered” providing a link for you to click for more information.

Hackers can then gain access to your computer and may encrypt or install malwear or worse.

Warning signs include misspellings, irregular logos or messages urging you to act quickly.

Should you fall victim report it directly to The Federal Trade Commission.
