Police Warn Of Mail Scam Targeting OC Organizations

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The Ocean City Police Department says they are warning citizens of a current mail scam targeting Ocean City area organizations involving the delivery of "non-ordered" cell phones.

According to reports, these local organizations reported to have received packages delivered by UPS or Federal Express. These packages allegedly contained several cell phones which were not ordered by the victim. Shortly after the package arrived, victims reported receiving a telephone call from the scammer who identifies herself as an employee of Verizon.

Police say the scammer will then give instructions on what to do with the box of cell phones, often times requesting that the box be returned to the delivery company with instructions to forward the box to a different location. The scammer reportedly further states that the phones were sent to the address by accident.

Anyone with information regarding this scam are asked to contact Detective James Rodriguez of the OCPD Criminal Investigation Division, Major Crimes Unit at 410-520-5347 or at jrodriguez@oceancitymd.gov.
