Default Combined Package Services strikes again

.:grJust got that little green postcard in the mail(out of whitehouse Texas)
ITS A SCAM!!

There is no package to be delivered, what they want you to do is prepay over the phone to them using your credit card so they can get your number and then you wind up in the poorhouseumpy:

That scam has been around awhile. If it didn't work often enough to earn them some money, they would quit using it. I guess that means some will still pay to get a package they didn't order.

Also the email scam saying a package service (UPS, Fedex, Airborne, etc.) tried and couldn't deliver a package to you is going around again. I have gotten the email twice in the past week. They want you to click on the "Bill of Lading" to get details on how to get your package delivered. The "Bill of Lading" is a *.zip file which, when you click on it, install a virus on your computer.

Be careful our there!
