BROOKLYN - The United States Post Office issued a statement on its website warning customers about receiving spam delivery e-mails.

The e-mails, which look authentic, are about attempted or intercepted package delivery. It asks recipients to click on a link and find information about their packages. The post office is instructing people to simply delete the fraudulent message without opening it.

Recipients who have received the scam e-mail can report the problem by calling 1-800-275-8777.
