Lock Your Mailbox

Identity theft is prominent now more than ever. Identity thieves are familiar with the tricks on how to obtain important information about their victims. The mailbox  is a treasure trove of  significant personal information. Bear in mind that it is possible for your mail  to have checks that can be chemically washed and rewritten, incoming checks, greeting cards that might have money or gift cards in them, utility bills that have info that can be used to open fraudulent accounts in your name, bank statements, credit card offers, and such. Mail theft is one of the easy ways these thieves can get your personal information. Using locking mailboxes can be a practical and easy way to prevent mail theft. Don't go cheap, this type of investments go a long way.

If your village does not have residential mailboxes yet, now might be a good time to request or write a petition for it. Am sure a lot of your neighbors are wishful of this clean-cut, practical and safe type of mail boxes. For offices, commercial mailboxes are also available.
