MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – The United States Postal Service is on high alert for potential scammers after a local couple tried to buy money orders with stolen credit cards.
The U.S. Postal Inspector for the Nashville area has sent out an alert to be on the look-out for a man and woman going around the post offices trying to buy money orders– but not with their own money.

Kyle Evans. Read more at WKRN
