Is legit?

No, but is …

Have you received an email with the subject:

Delivery notification – Parcel delivery … failed

After a few lines of pretend-data, the ‘notice’ gives you the opportunity to click on a link to https://tools.usps dot [wait for it] COM!

Guess what? That’s a scam. According to an official United States Postal Service source, “… a number of people have reported receiving emails claiming to be from the U.S. Post Office. The emails are regarding a missing package delivery and contain a link. In one instance, post office officials say someone clicked on the link and it caused their computer to lock up.

“The emails are coming from an email address using “” Any email that comes directly from the U.S. Post Office will always come from an email address using “”

Remember that links are often click bait. Think first, then Google it. Don’t be taken.
