MILWAUKEE (WITI) – It’s a scam involving hundreds of millions of dollars, and you can be easily lured in. In one case, a post office manager became suspicious and helped a victim realize he was a victim before it was too late.
“You get to know your customers on a personal level and you know what they receive on monthly/weekly basis almost,” Postmaster William Gomez said.
That’s why Gomez says he was suspicious when he noticed one of his customers was coming in more regularly.
“Once there was numerous pieces — several weekly express pieces going and coming from out of the country — a flag was set off, an alarm immediately,” Gomez said.
