USPS tightens online security after fraudsters steal employees’ paychecks

The Postal Service is tightening its online security measures, in response to fraudsters targeting the financial information of USPS employees.

USPS, in a memo to its workforce on Tuesday, warned that cyber criminals are targeting USPS employees by creating fake websites that closely resemble LiteBlue, the agency’s online employee portal.

Postal unions are warning members that fraudsters are using these spoofed websites to obtain USPS employees’ login credentials, and reroute direct-deposit paychecks to their own bank accounts.

LiteBlue allows employees to their paycheck information, access their Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB), access their Thrift Savings Plan and contact USPS human resources.
