This scam is perfidious – deceitful and untrustworthy.

Many of us have resorted to buying on line and the people who sell and then ship to us tend to use whatever is available.

FedEx and UPS appear to be swamped at time.

The packages are frequently late but they do get there.

This note appeared in my mail box.  I knew the moment I saw it that it was a scam – but that is due to a large degree because I see literally dozens a day.

Take a look at this:

Scam delivery failed

My first reaction was that I had not bought anything from the company – but maybe one of the companies I did buy something from was using a different delivery service.

The address it was supposedly sent from could be real.  When I thought it about it – it just looked too fishy.  Then I noticed the address they used to reach me I realized that was not a name I would ever use.

Cardinal rule:  If in doubt – don’t.
