    “Hello Kim, your USPS package with tracking code 51550 is waiting for you to set delivery preferences:”

    Links to both the official looking United States Postal Service website and the FedEx official looking website both showing the package was detained “Walmart win package containing an iPad” with instructions to click on the link to complete the shipping information. I did not since Walmart already has my address for previous shipments. BEWARE all!
