Definition: The Postal Service Scam revolves around the delivery of an unsolicited (and worthless) package by a seemingly legitimate parcel postman. When he informs you that it’s C.O.D., and you fork over the funds – you’ve been had!
The Mark: Any home-owner or flat-dweller in any city or town.
The Scam: Normally, if someone just rings your bell and asks you for money, you’d slam the door in his face. But here’s a scam that has our poor mark willingly forking over his hard-earned cash – and saying “thank you” to the hustler.
