Several people in Milford have received letters that appear to be from Home Depot, but instead contain a pornographic images.

The letters were sent through the U.S. Postal Service, according to Milford Police.

The envelopes display a fraudulent sender address of Home Depot, police said. In addition to the lewd photo, the letters also made references to the Home Depot company.

“Oh my god!” exclaimed Susan Tartaglia. 

Tartaglia gets mail from the company on occasion and didn’t want to be a victim. “I wouldn’t want my children to see that,” Tartaglia explained.

Home Depot released a statement that said the company was appalled and greatly appreciated the efforts of law enforcement to investigate this matter.  It went on to say it was cooperating with investigators.

Milford police are currently working with other agencies to determine their source of the letters.

Police urge anyone who receives one of the suspicious letters to leave them unopened and contact authorities. Anyone with information on the letters is asked to call Sergeant Tony Vitti of the Milford Police Special Investigations Unit at 203-783-4771 or to email him at avitti@ci.milford.ct.us.
