Posted By on May 10, 2019

To protect your mail and packages from theft, below are some helpful hints.

Package Theft Prevention

  • Always track your package deliveries so that you know when they are estimated to arrive at your home.
  • Make sure that someone is home to receive the delivery, or that a trusted neighbor is available to receive the package on your behalf.
  • Never leave your deliveries unattended in front of your door.
  • If they are delivering a package, make sure they leave it in front of your door and not in front of the building entrance.
  • Always require a signature when having items delivered.

Mail Theft Prevention

  • Always use a U.S. Postal collection box or deposit your mail inside your local post office.
  • Whether you have a home mailbox or use a post office box, you should always collect your mail on the day it is delivered
  • Never leave it in your mailbox overnight.
  • Mail thieves look for bank statements and credit card bills, which can be used to create counterfeit checks or fake identifications.
  • Thieves also look for personal checks enclosed in utility bills or other
    payments
  • Thieves take these stolen checks, remove the ink, and then
    fill out the blank check with their name and desired amount.
  • Never send cash or coins through the mail.
  • When reordering checks, have them sent to your bank.
  • When you travel, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail or have the post office hold your mail.
