BALTIMORE (WBFF)– Three alert United States Postal Service employees are being credited with stopping a suspected mail fraud scam that had targeted an elderly U.S. Veteran.
The employees of the Middle River, Baltimore County branch of the Post Office tell us how they were alerted to the possible scheme. Supervisor Erica Lomax said, “the red flag was him wanting to send a blank money order to someone he didn’t know.”
The Post Office customer had requested the money order, and had explained to Loretta Green why he wanted it so quickly. Green, a 20 year employee with the USPS, said “he was under the assumption that if he sent them express this 800 dollar money order to somewhere in Georgia then he was going to get $2 million dollars back.”
