When she realized she’d been lured into a lottery scam, a 78-year-old woman recently turned to Lake View, SC, Postmaster Mary Beth Chavis for help. The customer contacted Chavis after sending nearly $5,000 in cash via Priority Mail Express. Before delivery, Chavis contacted the Post Office where the money was headed. Postal inspectors returned the funds to the customer.
