Researchers say more than 1,500 stolen checks reported per week, part of dark web mail scheme
COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A fraud scheme has postal workers getting robbed at gunpoint and researchers believe some of these criminals were behind a robbery in Smyrna.
In March, police went to an apartment complex after a U.S. postal worker was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight. Channel 2′s Michael Seiden was in Cobb County and researchers with GSU have been following this issue for months. They said this is all part of an elaborate mail fraud scheme, but the researchers asked to remain anonymous because they are receiving threats.
