How exactly does UPS COD work; please read details?

If someone sends me an item with UPS COD is the check/money order sent directly to them or does UPS handle it? I ask because I’m not sure how comfortable I am with a stranger having a personal check (routing # and account #) from me. Also, I’ve heard of unexpected charges that may come up at the time of delivery and I’m pretty sure that UPS does not accept cash or credit cards. A money order/bank check would not cover these. So how does it work? Please, be nice.
