U.S. Postal Inspector Team Leader Kathryn Woliung says prevention is the best way to stop mail based scamming.
The Cincinnati based inspector participated in a “Stamp Out Mail Scams” awareness campaign event Thursday at Lexington’s central post office. She’s been working in this area for 15 years.
“The scams are the same. There’s different variations of the scams. And maybe with social media, individuals may be easier to be targeted through email, scams, websites, etc. But overall, we probably see about the same amount,” said Woliung.
