The U.S. Postal Service wants to warn you about a holiday scam. Customers are getting bogus emails about a package.

The emails have a link that when opened, installs a virus on your computer that steals your personal information such as your user name, password, and financial account information.

The emails claim to be from the USPS and contain fraudulent information about a package delivery.

Officials say don't click on the link, just delete it.
