You Have A Delivery....From Who?

Avoid These Holiday Scams

GREENSBORO, NC -- It's about to be that time of year again, when unexpected boxes and deliveries show up at your door. 
 
So, when you get a notice with your name and address on it
that says you have a delivery, it seems legit.
 
This yellow card is making the rounds. Let me give you a closer look at it. It claims “the office” is attempting to reach you, but it doesn't say what office.
 
On the front there is a phone number, but again, no name of the business who is trying to deliver the package to you. Is this illegal? Nope. But chances are, it’s probably someone trying to sell you something. 

The Federal Trade Commission says a delivery notice is usually fake if it asks you to confirm any kind of personal information or take immediate action like calling a number or clicking a link.

You can make complaints about this practice to the local Better Business Bureau.
