Protect Your Identity by Locking Your Mailbox

Alcatraz Locksmith would like to forward this important information from the US Postal Service. 

Postal Inspectors across the country work hard to protect your mail. But with deliveries to more than 100 million addresses, the Postal Inspection Service can't do the job alone.

Here's what you can do to protect your mail from thieves:
  • Use the letter slots inside your Post Office for your mail, or hand it to a letter carrier.
  • Pick up your mail promptly after delivery. Don’t leave it in your mailbox overnight. If you're expecting checks, credit cards, or other negotiable items, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail.
  • If you don't receive a check or other valuable mail you're expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately.
  • If you change your address, immediately notify your Post Office and anyone with whom you do business via the mail.
  • Don’t send cash in the mail.
  • Tell your Post Office when you’ll be out of town, so they can hold your mail until you return.
  • Report all suspected mail theft to a Postal Inspector.
  • Consider starting a neighborhood watch program. By exchanging work and vacation schedules with trusted friends and neighbors, you can watch each other's mailboxes (as well as homes).
  • Consult with your local Postmaster for the most up-to-date regulations on mailboxes, including the availability of locked centralized or curbside mailboxes.

If you see a mail thief at work, or if you believe your mail was stolen, call police immediately, then call Postal Inspectors at 877-876-2455 (press 3).

    It's simple tips, but I think that what you've shared regarding locking our mailboxes to protect our identity is vital for every homeowner. We should not just look for the cheapest deal, but we should look also for the deal that is right for us and for our situation. Mail security is an important matter and we should not compromise it. We're are vulnerable to a lot of danger, such as identity theft and kind of illegal activities.

    Thanks for the tips! A well mannered and honest locksmith service provider always provides you all the information that you required from them. Also, don't be afraid to interview the locksmith, asking about the experience that the company offers.
