I received the same email today and I am from Belgium, so picking up my package in Fremont would be practically impossible... Luckily this email is a hoax, I hope. I had to pay $ 09.22 a day, how about that? But, my eternal thanks to those who made this website....

I am really suprised that people would even consider that this might be valid... even for a minute. I honestly admit that I am a bit disappointed in the overall comments by the general populace whom stated they were "almost going to the post office". Really? I can't believe people would be that ignorant or gullible. If you have ever mailed something in your life, have you ever heard that the postal service charges you a storage fee? Threatened to charge you money if you don't pick something up? Have you ever heard of return to sender happening? Common sense isn't very common now is it. I hit this site while looking for a route to counterattack the sender. I would hope that those whom read the postings wake up and smell the spams.

June 12 2012, got one today. No zip attachment, just a txt attachment which I opened as I thought it would be safe ?? Pages of garbage and a $6.70 fine threatened. Parcel (?) is at Amarillo.

I received this on the 26th, and they are charging me $16.40 a day! But I see no attachment. The English is poor, which is a giveaway..."The weight of parcel is exceed the available parameters for free delivery" and "for it's keeping in the amount of $16.40 for each day of keeping of it." Thank you all for your information.

I just this message yesterday, however while the message was the same, there was no attachment. Since I was expecting a package from oversees, I printed the email and took it to the post office where I was informed that it was a scam. Since there was no attachment to open, I'm wondering if just opening the email is problematic.

The idiot who wrote this must be... an idiot. (The United States Postal Service does not refer to itself as a company) (There is no such thing with USPS called “expedited shipping”) ( (Riiight, like The U.S.P.S is going to charge you for “holding mail” ha,ha,hal) (Since when does the postal service notify you of anything by EMail) ( (USPS does not have “couriers”)

We just got this too. Luckily our PC detected a virus and wouldn't open it

Almost forgot, unzipping the .zip file reveals an .exe file and a bunch of .txt files.

Very soon after placing an order with Amazon here in England (United Kingdom), I got an email dated 28 April 2012 purporting to come from USPS Logistics telling me "We couldn't deliver your parcel". Fortunately my PC Security software had detected that the attachment contained a virus and removed it. What motivates these scammer scum to try and trash people's PCs?

Hi, I got a similar email asking me to open the attached label and take to my nearest post office of USPS. I have not opened the attachment. I did go to my local post office this morning and found out that there was no record of this parcel in their post room. Having just read your web page I understand that it must be a scam so I am taking no further action.

My wife opened the .exe file on her MacBook, and so far nothing's happened....

Yes! My mom received an email very similar to this from USPS just a moment ago. Because she had recently purchased an item from Amazon.com, she thought perhaps it was legitimate. But if that were the case, Amazon (or any other online store) would be responsible for the shipping payment and not her. And there would have been no reason for USPS to have her email information either. Always be sure to google or look into the possibility of a potential scam before opening links from any sender, because the scammers are getting more clever hiding their viruses. Last year, my brother got an email claiming (and looking convincing) to be from the IRS, but it was also a scam.

" I received an email from this company on April 11, 2012...I was wondering why i cant open the content of the said email,..so i contact my sister in UAE if she made the transaction because till now i'm waiting for my package from her. But as she replied," just wait for the delivery because i'l send it to your address door to door basis", so now i've found that this is justy a scam...

Nice scam. It even comes from a "usps.com" return email address. This is what mine said. The label is actually an .exe file.

I received an e-mail from USPS LOGISTICS today saying that I had a parckage/parcel that couldn't be delivered and to go to the nearest USPS office to pick it up and that it was presently being kept at YONKERS and to print the label and take it with me and show it to USPS so I can get my package and gave me Parcel#U419989557N6 as the number of my parcel and that it was insured. Also, the email says that if I do't pick it up within 30 days that I will be charged $12.39 per day for every day they held it for pickup. I don't know who would be sending me a package unless it is from Libya and even then my friend would';ve written and told me it was coming. Could this be a scam? Please advise and where is Yonkers?.

It's definitely making the rounds. I received this "notification" today but was suspicious with the content. Of course, I didn't try to open the attached zip file.
