FRAUDULENT SCHEME TARGETING SHIPPERS OF HIGH VALUE ITEMS.
I though I share this bulletin I received today from Ship And Insure ( an insurance group)
"Ship and Insure and the North American Collectibles Association have recently become aware of a fraudulent scheme targeting shippers of high value items. Thieves are obtaining shipping data of packages and calling in to Carriers to request that specific packages be rerouted to be ‘held for pickup’.
The thieves then produce ID matching the name on the label and disappear with the package. We are now strongly recommending all customers request a restriction on their respective accounts with Carriers to not allow any rerouting of packages. "
