Thief targets mailboxes in change-of-address scam

NAPLES, Fla. -A few days of an empty mailbox sent off warning bells for a Naples woman in what turns out to be an elaborate scam.

Scammers only need your name and your address, and the thief can have your mail forwarded to them.

When Ruth Baldwin stopped getting mail for a couple of days, she thought nothing of it.

“I let it go because I hadn’t heard any reports about anything like this,” said Baldwin.

But after a week without mail, she took a trip to her Naples post office to find out what was going on.
