With the impending holidays comes a surge in mail theft and a number of reasons to take proactive measures before a thief snatches your mail, and possibly your identity.
While yes, holiday mail theft is centered on packages, gift cards and cash — that’s not all these thieves are after. Your mail, particularly pre-approved credit card statements, bills and checks are filled with personally identifiable information (PII) that can be used to commit identity theft, check fraud and related identity crimes. Mail theft doesn’t just happen over the holidays; career crooks make a stable living from snatching letters, bill and junk mail. Make a daily routine out of collecting your mail — even if you aren’t necessarily expecting something. (Keep in mind: even a simple utility bill is valuable to an identity thief.) The more time you leave your mailbox full, the longer a scammer has to snatch it.
Better yet, be proactive and consider alternative delivery methods when placing online orders. A growing trend is to have holiday packages delivered to your place of work. You could also request packages be delivered to a trusted neighbor or choose to pick up packages at your local post office.
