Scam stopper

Cranford, NJ, Retail Associate Jennifer Goodwin

Cranford, NJ, Retail Associate Jennifer Goodwin recently helped two older customers avoid becoming scam victims.

In both incidents, which occurred within two weeks of each other, Goodwin recognized signs of fraudulent activity when the customers sought to mail cash.

The Postal Service employee encouraged the customers to keep their money, and authorities were alerted.

Cranford Police Chief Ryan Greco later thanked Goodwin on social media.

“Her involvement in these fraud cases was exemplary and she should be commended for her actions,” Greco said.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
