UPS is a global company with one of the most recognized and admired brands in the world. Occasionally, fraudsters take advantage of UPS's reputation by using our name or services to target your personal and sensitive business information. By creating tempting downloads and attractive websites, fraudsters can lure you to links that prompt you to enter sensitive information or download malware -- malicious software such as viruses or spyware. While UPS is not liable for the actions of third parties, we are working to prevent and detect fraud where possible.
We take fraud and the protection of our customers' information seriously. By providing extra layers of security for online shipping, we help you keep sensitive information like account numbers and credit card information safe.
The same types of fraud schemes that have existed for many years can now be found online, in e-mail, and through other computer-based methods. Learn how to recognize fraud before you become a victim.
Being aware and protecting your sensitive information is the best way to prevent fraud. Read some helpful tips on what you can do to protect yourself.
