Bellevue, NE, Retail Associate William Reynek

Bellevue, NE, Retail Associate William Reynek became suspicious recently when a customer tried to mail $2,300 via Priority Mail Express Mail.

When Reynek called the intended recipient and began asking questions, the individual hung up on him.

Reynek explained to the customer that it was probably a scam and persuaded her to keep her money.

“If it seems too good to be true, it probably is,” Reynek said.

His actions were the subject of a TV news report, as well as social media posts.

“There was a customer in line when this all happened and she posted some very positive comments on Facebook,” said Postmaster Elizabeth Norton.

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