This email, which purports to be from U.S. postmaster general Louis DeJoy, claims that the USPS has your promised ATM card and is ready to deliver it to you.
The email asks that you send your name and contact details so that the ATM card and other supporting documents can be delivered to your address.
But, of course, the email is not from Louis DeJoy or the USPS. It is yet another advance fee scam designed to steal your money and personal information.
This version of the long-running scam attempts to re-victimize people that have been caught out in previous scams. In this case, victims were no doubt promised an ATM card that would allow them to withdraw several thousand dollars per day until the million-dollar-plus card value was reached.
Victims would have sent money to pay imaginary fees supposedly required to allow verification and delivery of the ATM card. Alas, the card and promised money never existed and the victims would have been left out of pocket when the scammers finally stop responding.
This message tries to restart the scam all over again by pretending that delivery of the card was simply delayed.
If recipients send the requested information, they will once again be asked to send money to cover yet more entirely imaginary fees. Thus the cycle continues.

An example of the scam email:
Attn: Beneficiary,I am Louis DeJoy, Postmaster General of the United States and the Chief Executive Officer of the U.S Postal Service, Washington DC, address: 475 L’Enfant Plaza, SW Room 4012.I wish to notify you that we have received a Atm card from a postal officer whose name is Ms Charity Smith. She informed us that the Atm is yours and was supposed to be delivered to your home address. Because of the numerous parcels and packages that she had to deliver to various destinations, she could not complete her delivery to your home address and she left your Atm in our department to complete the delivery.
So, understand that your Atm is in our capable hands and we shall complete the delivery to your address.
Your Cellphone No
