Fake USPS Phone Calls

Scammers are calling USPS® customers and using a technique known as Caller ID Spoofing to make these calls appear to originate from a USPS phone number. The caller will explain that there is a package waiting to be delivered, but only after personal information is verified. Don’t take the bait. The U.S. Postal Service® does not call customers about package deliveries and they will never request personally identifiable information for delivery verification purposes.

Protect Yourself From Fraudulent Phone Calls

  • Contact USPS if you have questions

    If you received a call about a package delivery, contact USPS with questions.

  • Don't give out personal information

    Never provide personal information during a phone call that you did not initiate.

  • Report calls about package delivery

    If you do receive such a call about a package delivery, record the number on your caller ID and call the Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455.
