Clerk officials say the text is not sent from the office and is completely fraudulent. They warn not to click on any links and delete the text immediately.

We have also received word that a similar text scam is being sent out to Evansville residents. The scammer falsely sends out texts as the USPS, telling residents there has been an issue with their package. The shady link leads to a website that looks like the USPS’ website, but is not. Keep an eye out for these kind of scams as well.
