Dry-Cleaning Bill Scam

How the scam works:

This is a mail fraud that is typically perpetrated on local restaurateurs. According to Wikipedia, “this scheme takes a receipt from a legitimate dry cleaner the target city, duplicates it thousands of times, and sends it to every upscale eatery in town. An attached note claims a server in the victim's restaurant spilled food, coffee, wine or salad dressing on a diner's expensive suit of clothes and demands reimbursement for dry cleaning costs. As the amount fraudulently claimed from each victim is relatively low, some will give the scammers the benefit of the doubt.


The scam's return address is a drop box; the rest of the contact information is fictional or belongs to an innocent third party. The original dry cleaning shop, which has nothing to do with the scheme, receives multiple irate inquiries from victimized restaurateurs.”
