RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – It’s a costly mistake that happens more and more often around the area – falling for a fake package delivery notice.
Consumer watchdog organizations like the NC Consumers Council say complaints about the scam are on the rise.
The fake missed delivery notices are being sent by text, email, and delivery via mailbox or right on your doorstep in the form of a doorknob hanger placard.
They are all pretty much the same.
You receive a notice saying while you were out someone tried to deliver a package.
