Last week when I bought the zip-on fitted sheet (which is a bit deep for my mattress but delightful to zip off) somehow I entered my address one digit off. Jumped through a few hoops, got the sheets.
Then I discovered on the USPS web site that I'd made the same mistake for a surprise sweatshirt I bought Gary, and the next morning Gary got this text message:
"That's odd," I thought, "Why are they sending the message to Gary?" we clicked that link and stopped at the spot where they said the package was three dollars extra, and that's when I pumped the brakes.
I sent an email to USPS asking if my suspicious were valid and if there was another way I could pay, and almost immediately they called back and said, "That's a con."
But it was so convincing! I would show you the professional page where that link goes, but I can't, all I get today is this:
Here's the odd thing: I really did have a package with the wrong address, one digit off. The postal customer service man explained my regular postman would have delivered it, but I had a temp today. In fact he was so helpful I began to think he might be a con artist himself, wriggling in to my good graces.
No con thoguh, just a coincidence, not surprising given how many packages Gary and I have been ordering.
