NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -A viewer contacted Channel 4 after receiving an email that he believed to be suspicious.
The email told the recipient that if they had recently mailed their property tax payment, they might need to send another check.
The email claimed to be from the city of Belle Meade. It said a mail truck that delivers mail to their office had caught fire.
The viewer believed it was a scam. Turns out, it was true.
A postal carrier’s truck burned completely on Harding Road on Wednesday morning. The mail carrier was fine, but that wasn’t the case for all of the mail and packages inside, including the mail that was about to be delivered to Belle Meade’s city hall.
