Chicago man redirects all of UPS’s mail to his one-bedroom apartment

Dushaun Henderson-Spruce, 24, has been criminally charged with orchestrating a scheme that sent mail intended for United Parcel Service’s corporate headquarters in Atlanta to his one-bedroom apartment in Chicago. Alleging that Henderson-Spruce filed a change-of-address form to the U.S. Postal Service, court documents show Henderson-Spruce received hoards of mail — including checks, corporate credit cards and other sensitive documents — and got away with it for three months.

Only after Henderson-Spruce deposited nearly $60,000 in UPS checks into his personal bank account did the company learn of the scam, according to court documents. The story was first reported by The Chicago Tribune.

The affidavit states that in mid-January, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service was alerted to an individual who, three months before, had submitted a form to change a company’s corporate Atlanta address to an apartment unit in Chicago.
