    UPS to pay $4.2 million for false delivery claims - USA Today

    Package delivery giant UPS (UPS) Wednesday reached a $4.2 million settlement for overcharging 17 states and three local entities by falsely recording that next-day delivery packages reached their intended destinations on time.

    The agreement, the Atlanta-based company's second on similar allegations this year, covers alleged wrongdoing from 2004 to 2014 in which some employees recorded inaccurate delivery times on packages that government customers sent via UPS next-day delivery services.

    Billy Ray God, help us all.....


    If it's late, it's late.
    Don't record it any other way.

    This will be a hot issue for a while, and heads could roll; don't let one of those be yours.

    And yet.....how many UPS drivers lose their jobs each day for "dishonesty"?

    Drivers in our building are no longer permitted to record a package as "damaged"...even though it clearly is damaged.

    Fortunately....it really did pay for this UPS "whistle blower" to be honest...

    My fault. I was fumbling around and posted the wrong link.

    It's fixed now.
