We want to help you avoid being a victim of fraud

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.

Staying vigilant

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:

  • UPS does not request personal information, financial information, account numbers, IDs, passwords, or copies of invoices in an unsolicited manner through email, mail, phone, or fax or specifically in exchange for the transportation of goods or services.
  • Do not click on any links in a message you are uncertain about. Instead, send a screen shot of the message or forward it to Fraud@ups.com for investigation.
