.

On each of the carriers websites, they warn consumers that there are fake emails circulating. The email can say there is something wrong with delivering the package and also attaches a link to click on.

If someone were to click the link, it could lead to a fake website that a person can put in personal information.

Around this time of year, the BBB said they have seen an increase in phishing emails.

"When you get these type of emails and most of us are like "Oh, great, something's wrong," but just take a minute. Look at it closely and if it does look a little off to you, take a proactive approach as opposed to just clicking on the link," said Jeremy Johnson, with the BBB.

When looking at an email, make sure there are no misspellings or see if the logo looks a little different.

"It’s better say if this is a situation, I'm going to maybe take my tracking number I already have and I'm going to go right to that delivery’s website as opposed to using the email," she advised.
