    I think you should change the name of the thread. It's not a UPS scam but scammers using the UPS name.

    Considering that rocket only received $50.300 (fifty dollars and three hundred cents), I don't think there will be enough to go around. On the other hand, he does type like one of those Nigerian scammers.:surprised:
