    You're an Attorney/Judge...you receive a box in the mail.
    Return receipt requested..no return address....sticker says fragile.
    Someone paid $14 to send it 20 miles from postmark.
    Threats have been made to you....

    Well, the return receipt should indicate it is "safe", but they say NOT to open anything that doesn't have a return address. But shouldn't the return receipt have an address? It should, how else can they return the receipt!

    Open nothing w/o return address. Even then, know the package is 'coming.'

    The Bomb squad opened it..a box of maternity cloths...with a very strange letter...
    Maybe, a hoax...maybe just a mistake...maybe someone just mistaken about names and addresses..
    At least it didn't blowup..

    Having lived through the "anthrax day" at NBC here in NYC, I would absolutely agree...do not open it!!!!!

    I'm glad everything worked out for you though.
