Scammers are using legitimate courier services to target elderly.

One business in Arizona has already been caught trying to scam a 90-year-old St. Louis, MO, woman.

According to reports, the business hired a messenger service in Missouri to collect a signature from an elderly woman. But the messenger on the job became suspicious and contacted police.

Turns out the senior woman thought she was getting a part-time job from the government stuffing envelopes. But, in fact, she nearly got scammed.
