Postal Service aware ‘Informed Delivery’ used fraudulently

ORLANDO, Fla. – A postal inspector with the United States Postal Service confirmed to News 6 the agency is investigating nearly two dozen cases in Central Florida of “Informed Delivery” being used fraudulently.

Last week, News 6 reported how crooks opened fraudulent credit card accounts in Gigi Fotieo’s and her parents’ names and charged more than $17,000.

“I got this bill for $2,000 for a credit card that we never signed up for,” Fotieo said.

Belle Isle police believe the crooks got those cards by signing Fotieo up for Informed Delivery. It is a free service from the United States Postal Service that emails you every day with pictures of what you’ll get in the mail that day.
