Chapter 13 Payment Missing: Maybe It was HOT Mail

I recently received an email from a bankruptcy attorney in Jacksonville, indicating he received an email with an attached letter. The letter purported to be from the United States Postal Service, and was advising the recipient that a mail truck carrying letter bound for Tennessee had crashed and burned. That is, all the mail in the truck was burned.

A few things, right off the back, struck me as strange. The letter was sent to the address of the recipient of the supposed burned mail. How would the post office know what address the burned mail was bound for?

Anyway, if you recently mailed a payment to the Chapter 13 Trustee, with a delivery address of Memphis, TN, and it did not arrive, you may want to check out the story of the mail truck.

And, I know what you are thinking. Sure, a mail truck burned! Like, really. Well, that was my reaction too. So, to be able to tell you this was a joke, I went to Google and did a brief search. What do you know...there actually was a fire involving a crash between a dump truck and a mail truck. The only thing that did not match up was the date. The crash was March 21, 2013, whereas the letter indicated the crash was May 7. If you would like to see the article, just click ---> Click Here
