FORT WORTH (CBS 11 News) – Residents in west Fort Worth notified the United States Postal Service Thursday of what appeared to be a phishing scam set up at a neighborhood mailbox.
The scam is an example of a crime that, according to the local postal inspector, has resulted in 30 arrests across the metroplex, since October.
The large, blue stand-alone mailbox that sits at the corner of W. Camp Bowie Blvd. and Winthrop looked normal from the outside, but the internal components were something different. The inside of the opening for the box was coated with an adhesive.
