  SCAM ALERT!

USPS Shipping Information Scam! 

We have just been notified that there is a scam email circulating. The email's subject line is "Shipping Information for parcel 753405750". The email body will read something like this:

"Our Courrier was not able to deliver your parcel because nobody was present at your address.

Someone must always be present on the delivery day, to sign for receiving the parcel.

Shipping type: USPS Next Day
Box Size: Large Box (2-5kg)
Date: Feb 6th 2017

You can reschedule the delivery over the phone, but you will have to confirm the information on the delivery invoice. 
Another delivery can be arranged, by calling the number on the delivery invoice we left at your address and confirming the shipping information . 

A scanned copy of the delivery invoice can also be downloaded by visiting the USPS website:
https://tools.usps.com/web/pages/view.invoice?id=75340575 0&dest=your email address.

In the exceptional case that a new delivery is not rescheduled in 24 hours, the shipment will be cancelled and the package will be returned.

Thanks for shipping with USPS"
