BBB warns of scam hitting Michigan residents

The Michigan Better Business Bureau warns consumers of a scam in which people are receiving a deceptive, official looking postcard requesting a package pickup. But it turns out it's an attempt to lure them into buying a vacation package. The BBB says the postcard is green in color and comes from Package Services (aka - Summit Package Services, Express Package Services and Apex Services) located at P.O. Box 820, Whitehouse, TX.
The recipient is asked to call an "800" number to schedule a package pick-up and is provided a package number. When the call is placed, consumers are finding that it is a solicitation for a travel agency called "Cruise – Drive – Fly" presumed to be located in Ann Arbor, MI. Their intent is to sell vacation packages.
