New today ~ my friend's daughter (18 yrs old) today received money orders in the mail thru fedex and UPS. Both delivered the same day. A good amount from both. From Virginia. And that was it. They had her name, address and cell phone number. Knowing that we/they would never deposit these things, I guess the next thing will be a call from someone telling her what to do with the money?! Not sure where to go from here except not to cash them.

I would destroy them and let her know that she is lucky she did not become a scam victim.

This is just why I want to get scam awareness programs on to the college campus! Have your friend or her daughter email me if they would like to see this at the college she attends.
