MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Thursday the state is warning you about a new e-mail scam.

The Department of Ag, Trade and Consumer Protection says you should be on the look out for e-mails that appear to be from delivery companies or major retailers.

They say the e-mails claim people have a shipment waiting to be delivered but there's been a problem.

In order to receive your shipments, the e-mail prompts you to follow a link to fill out a form.

In reality the link puts your computer at risk for downloading malware.

If you receive an email the department says you should delete it.
