RANSOMWARE ALERT

Sheriff Tate Lawrence said that the Association of Arkansas Counties had advised there has been ransomware that looks as if it’s from USPS letting you know they have tried to deliver a package and need more information to make the delivery. This email has an attachment to open to get the information needed to reschedule the deliver. Sheriff Lawrence said this is Ransomware so don’t open it, just delete. Ransomware, if you open it infects your computer and you are asked to pay a ransom to have it removed.
