She was asked for her name, address, phone number and email address.And then she came to a page asking her to verify her identity. Miller was instructed to select the city in which she'd never lived from a list of four cities.She was asked to select the street on which she'd once lived from a list of four streets. Both questions revealed that UPS knew precisely where Miller had resided in the past.Then came a question asking Miller to select the month in which her daughter was born. And it included her daughter's name.
