Illinois - Former Employee Routed UPS Chicago Mail To His Apartment For 3 Months

||| Jonathan Weiss|||

A 24-year-old Chicagoan was formally accused today of running a scam when he submitted a form to the postal services to have the official address of UPS’s Chicago headquarters changed to his own apartment. For three months, he received all corporate mail and packages.

The man from Rogers Park received many thousands of packages and letters meant for UPS executives. Young Mr Dushaun Henderson-Spruce was thus charged with theft of mail and fraud.

He is currently being held in custody before a detention hearing takes place with Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Gilbert next week.

The young man, who shortly worked as a package handler for UPS back in 2012 had submitted a change-of-address form in writing to the US postal services on October 26th last year, in which he requested that the company’s headquarters address at 55 Glenlake Parkway NE in Atlanta be changed to 6750 N. Ashland Avenue, or in other words, his tiny one-bedroom apartment in central Chicago.

According to the charges, Mr Henderson-Spruce had not filled out his own name on the firm, but had at first draft the initials “HS” on the signature line, scratched those back out and replaced it with the letters “UPS.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">A Chicago man was able to cash approximately $58,000 in checks meant for UPS after changing the address of their headquarters to his home address. 📬<a href="https://t.co/zNTT3VVtWg">https://t.co/zNTT3VVtWg</a></p>&mdash; Twitter Moments (@TwitterMoments) <a href="https://twitter.com/TwitterMoments/status/994704287652556800?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 10, 2018</a></blockquote>

It was not until nearly three months later that a UPS security coordinator noticed the change and notified postal inspectors.

By that time, Mr Henderson-Spruce had already received thousands of packages and some 150 corporate American Express cards. He was also able to cash some $58k in checks.

Furthermore, given the size of Mr Henderson-Spruce’s mailbox, the US postal services, in order to accommodate the recipient “had to place the mail in a UPS tube and leave it at (Henderson-Spruce’s) door,” according to the affidavit.

I think of all the people who didn't receive their money or gifts. Justice must serve this employee.

This is called a "dirty trick". He probably read about it from a book on the topic. They never discuss criminal penalties.
