Pack and Ship PLUS in Sturgeon Bay is turning away money in some cases to help customers save some of theirs. Last week, the business stopped an elderly woman from sending $5,000 to a fraudulent person, part of the over $100,000 Pack and Ship PLUS has prevented from making into the hands of scam artists. Owner Julie Henry credits her staff for asking the right questions when it comes to situations that seem a little out of the ordinary. She says she would rather earn the customer’s trust over the long term than the money in the short term.
Henry reminds customers that you should never send cash in the mail and confirm that the person you are sending items to is actually expecting it. The Sturgeon Bay Police Department recognized Pack and Ship PLUS’ efforts with an award last week.
