Mysterious package sent to unsuspecting Geneva man

Ring

GENEVA, Minn. (FOX47) -- There have been reports of mysterious packages containing seeds arriving at the homes across the state and the country.

The packages all show a return address from China.

Jerry Schmit of Geneva got a similar delivery, but instead of seeds, it contained a gold-colored ring.

"I don't trust it," Schmit said. "There's a lot of questions that got no answers."

He said one of the first things he did was check his bank account to make sure nothing was missing. No money was taken, and then Schmit made sure it wasn't real gold.

"It's worth nothing. It's junk," Schmit said. "But that's what makes me nervous. What else are they doing that we don't know about?"

Schmit is concerned about how the sender, or senders, obtained his name and address.

He's not sure what he'll do with the ring at this point. Nothing else was inside of the package.
