Possible Mail Scam


Gaius

Recommended Posts

I was told about a new mail scam this morning (06/15/12) over breakfast by a friend who was just hit by this scam. Apparently the post office is requested (by e-mail/phone) to hold your mail while you are on vacation, how long you will be on vacation, and who the authorized person is to pick up your mail upon your return from vacation. After the vacation timeframe has pasted, the person running the scam retrieves your mail, keeps any credit cards and other important information for their use. My friend spend a full day notifying their credit cards accounts about what happen and ,after I asked about their bank, will be visiting their bank today.

Last time I did this, I had to go to the post office- in person- show ID before presenting "stop mail" notice. I hope the mail cops are working on this.

Normally I would have not given this must credit because it seem to me the post office usually (or did) requires some paper signed off. However this story came from someone I have know for a number of years and he is not known for wild stories.
