UPS Store Employee In Fond du Lac Saves The Day

An alert UPS Store employee located in downtown Fond du Lac is being credited with saving a Waupun resident from a potentially financially devastating scam.

A package containing thousands of dollars in cash was brought into The UPS Store, located in the 100 block of S. Main St., by an elderly Waupun resident.

The employee thought something was not right, and alerted local authorities.

Authorities then visited the resident at their home, who said an unknown party had been in communication with them via phone and internet, and instructed them to send the cash to an address in California.

The package contained $22,560 in cash, and was returned to the resident.

The incident remains under investigation.
