Mail & Identity Theft

Identity Theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States, and affects 10 million Americans each year. Mail theft is a common way that identity thieves can steal your identity, and the 60 million unlocked mailboxes in the US offer a treasure trove of opportunity for would-be identity thieves. Victims of mail theft often do not realize they have been victimized until their credit record and good name is ruined. Remedying the outcomes of fraud and identity theft requires thousands of dollars and hours of your time. This section provides information about the prevalence of mail and identity theft, and the precautions you can take to protect yourself and your name.

DISCLAIMER: Mail Boss does not suggest that the mailboxes referenced in the stories herein are those of our competitors.
