We have recently received some reports of mailbox tampering. Meaning that someone is going into people’s mailboxes and taking their information, including financial information. For example, a neighborhood resident put outgoing mail in her box for pick up, and thieves got her banking information, created phony checks and attempted to cash them at the bank they were written on. The first bank refused to process the check, but the second bank cashed the check. Police reports have been filed.
Please be mindful and careful of what you are putting in your mailbox. If you believe someone has tampered with your mail, call the police immediately.
