Fraudulent messages from people not associated with UPS can arrive in e-mail, text and even by phone call. A fraudulent email or text message may include official titles, a logo or colors that make the message look authentic when it is not. These electronic messages often contain hyperlinks to malware that infects electronic devices and can put you at risk for fraudulent activity.
UPS has resources dedicated to preventing, identifying and stopping fraudulent activity. However, scammers and fraudsters frequently change their methods to avoid detection. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
The examples shown in the attachment are not legitimate UPS communications. If you receive any of these or another message from UPS you are uncertain about, do not follow any links or download attachments. Please send a screen shot of the message to Fraud@ups.com and then delete the message. If you’ve accidentally selected a link, run a virus scan immediately.
