Subject: FW: Gov't. Warning Regarding purchase of UPS Uniforms
Warning Regarding purchase of UPS Uniforms
There has been a huge purchase, $32,000 worth, of United Parcel Service
(UPS) uniforms on eBay over the last 30 days.
This could represent a serious threat as bogus drivers can drop off anything
to anyone with deadly consequences! If you
have ANY questions when a UPS driver appears at your door, they should be
able to furnish VALID I.D..
Additionally, if someone in a UPS uniform comes to make a drop off or pick
up, make absolutely sure they are driving a
UPS truck. UPS doesn't make deliveries or pickups in anything except a
company vehicle. If you have a problem,
IMMEDIATELY call your local law enforcement agency right away!
TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY! Tell everyone in your office, family, friends, etc.
Make people aware so that we can prepare and/or
avoid terrorist attacks on our people!
Thank you for your time in reviewing this and PLEASE send to EVERYONE on
your list, even if they are friend or foe.
We should all be aware!
