Package from America?

Just received an email to one of my secondary email addresses. At first glance, I thought it was a scam, as I haven't ordered anything from the US.

So I thought I'd better check with the US postal service rather than click any links

I wonder if anyone has had a similar email?  I'm not going to waste my cash on a phone call to the US to make enquiries.😏

Re: Package from America?

Why would you get an email about a package at 'the local post office' that's still in the US?

Also that service.us email domain has no link to the USPS as far as I can see or a valid website connected to it.

Yes, and the top number in the scan shows that it had been delivered.  I think someone has used a calculated random recent number for the parcel service to show up as valid when scanned for, and maybe a scam waiting for someone clicking the link thinking they would get a paid for package for free. 😀
