    I did have a USPS fulfillment of a FedEx shipment, but the tracking number information from FedEx was very explicit about this happening...there was no surprise.

    That is FedEx's Smart Post where FedEx takes it part of the way and then turns it over to USPS for the last part. JCPenny and a bunch of others use this a lot.

    The tracking email is easily identified as a legitimate FedEx email. The only problem is that there is no more tracking once USPS gets it's mitts on it.

    No problem, Peter, Arizona is only a few miles from my house. If you send me $56.79, I'll pick it up for you. Glad to do it, pal.

    I told him it'll be $14,000. Here's his reply... typical scammer gibberish...

    behalf to my firm in Mongolia because am using for a project there with
    a recommended freight company.See below the details of the shipping
    company and the delivery address:

    Freight Company: Ana Shipping Lines

    Contact Details: anashippinglines@gmail.com

    Contact Person : Mr. John Hung




    Contact the shippers on the above email address with the weight of the
    units,the pick up address(your address) and the delivery address
    ;which is my branch address below :

    Rice Lmt.

    Please go ahead and email the shipping company now and get the
    shipping charges and send me an email back with the total cost for the
    shipping and units altogether so that I can pay you the total cost of
    the units together with the shipping cost with my credit card.

    That was not spam. That was a genuine offer. Anyone on the G knows why.


    The next poster will tell you that the text did not include the word:
    My hovercraft is full of anguish.
