I just received this email from work. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of this.

Government Warning regarding purchase of UPS uniforms:
There has been a huge purchase, $32,000 worth, of United Parcel Service
(UPS) uniforms on eBay over the last 30 days. This could represent a
serious threat as bogus drivers (terrorists) can drop off anything to anyone
with deadly consequences! If you have ANY questions when a UPS driver
appears at your door, they should be able to furnish VALID I.D

Additionally, if someone in a UPS uniform comes to make a drop off or
pickup, make absolutely sure they are driving a UPS truck. UPS doesn't make
deliveries or pickups in anything, except a company vehicle If you have a
problem, IMMEDIATELY call your local law enforcement agency
right away!

TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY! Tell everyone in your office, your family, your
friends, etc. Make people aware so that we can prepare and/or avoid
terrorist attacks on our people! Thank you for your time in reviewing this
and PLEASE send to EVERYONE on your list, even if they are friend or foe. We
should all be aware!

Thats kinda weird.

As i said earlier it would be in line with Al-Qaeda strategy to join UPS or steal a van and get waved into an underground carpark. Most freight wagons get unchecked as they're so laden with parcels.

Something to keep track of.

After re-reading that I believe it could be fake.

The semantics are all wrong and since when did the DHS use caps and !!! EXCLAMAION MARKS!!!!

And! The "send to everyone" would cause a public panic.


Its a good idea though.

Over here in the UK we question all royal mail deliveries: they never get it right.

No seriously here in the UK we have to be careful with parcels and stuff especially during the 70's and 80's with the IRA running around and with people with family in the millitary.

It is always prudent to be wary of stuff especially if you know damn well you didnt buy it, so heed the above warnings, its important.

thats very true, I didnt pick on that. Are there any other ways to validate this.

Snopes, the Urban Legends page, has an article on missing UPS uniforms and labels the story as "false." also has it listed as a ficticious chain letter.

Seems to me if they wanted to be quiet about it, why not jsut make it themselves? Why buy it over E-Bay....
