Mail theft is nothing new in Atlanta and surrounding suburbs. In 2006, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported a wave of mail theft in Gwinnett, Duluth, Doraville, and Norcross. More recently, incidents of mail theft were reported in the Oconee Crossing neighborhood.
In 2008, the Decatur Police Department warned Oakhurst residents that mail thefts were on the prowl. A letter from the Post Master asked residents to help catch the mail identity thieves responsible.
With the vigilance of Oakhurst residents, police may be able to apprehend the suspect(s) responsible for the epidemic of mail theft in the community. However, the stark reality is that mail theft is a growing problem, and it is not going away any time soon.
For individuals in Atlanta-metro and the surrounding suburbs, the first line of defense against mail identity theft is a secure locking mailbox. We are proud to announce that our newest retail partner, Addresses of Distinction, now carries the Mail Boss Locking Security Mailbox.
Addresses of Distinction, based out of Marietta Georgia, has a long history of providing quality mailboxes to homeowners in the La Grange and Atlanta areas.
