Metropolis Police and the Metropolis Post Office are warning residents of a text message scam.

The post office says they have been notified by customers that fraudulent text messages are being sent purporting to be from the United States Postal Service. The messages claim that there is an issue with a package delivery. 

The message has a link to a website that looks like the one from the USPS. After landing at the fake website, the scammers ask for a credit card so the package can be delivered. 

The Metropolis Post Office said that if a package requires extra postage, a carrier will contact the recipient while delivering the rest of their mail. They also said that anyone who gets these messages, do not click on the link, or give out any personal information. 

Officials suggest calling or visiting the post office if you have questions.
