MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A man walks into a post office with a $49,000 check — and this isn’t the beginning of a joke. It’s a reminder of why it’s important that you keep an eye on your checkbook.
“It wasn`t quite the normal customer. There was something about him that my staff picked up,” Customer Service Manager Melinda Martel said.
The customer asked to buy several rolls of stamps and cash his check, so the clerk asked him for ID.
“He`s insisting that he`s in a hurry. He`s insisting that he doesn`t get questioned for ID,” Martel said.
Postal employees were trying to keep the man there so they could get a picture of him and alert inspectors.
