Be Safe With Your Mail

Many people find it convenient to leave their outgoing mail in their mailbox. This is not a good idea if you have any identifying information on the papers inside, or if you are mailing checks. People have been known to take your mail, open it, and get into your checking account, or use your bank account, Social Security, or other identifying information to steal your identity.

For safety's sake, deposit that type of mail in a Post Office mailbox.

I don't write/mail checks any more, but this is good advice for those who do. Crooks know all the angles. We have new residents in our city who scour the highways in tow trucks. If they find cars parked with the absent owners gone looking for roadside assistance, they will tow the cars to their own back yards and strip them down for parts.
