Buffalo, NY, Letter Carrier Barbara Damato

Buffalo, NY, Letter Carrier Barbara Damato recently took a call from a customer who asked her to intercept a package bound for Nigeria.

The customer had discovered he was the victim of a fraudulent scheme and stood to lose money if the package was delivered.

Damato and a co-worker tracked down the mailpiece, which was still in the building.

The customer was notified that his item had been retrieved.

The next day, he returned to pick up his package and brought flowers and a card for Damato.

“Thanks so much for tracking down my package,” the card read. “You were very kind and helpful, and restored my faith in mankind.”
