Lena, WI, Retail Associate Amanda Fick became suspicious when a customer mailed several Priority Mail Express packages in a single week. Fick feared the man had fallen for a scam and alerted the Postmaster, who contacted Postal Inspectors. They spoke with the customer, who believed he won a sweepstakes and needed to mail cash to collect the prize. Most of the man’s money was retrieved.
