Mail Theft in Sherman Oaks, CA

laist copyEven Hollywood Hills not immune to mail identity thieves

LAist, “a website about Los Angeles,” recently published a report of “Mail Theft in the Hills” warning residents to lock their mailboxes.

Watch those mailboxes, people are stealing. Reported by a representative of City Councilman Jack Weiss last night at a Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council meeting, homes in the hills of Sherman Oaks (you know, “south of the boulevard,” as they say) are falling victim to mail theft. And while the immediate concern is ID theft, what is happening is that checks are being whited in the name field out and cashed by the thieves. Come tax rebate time, better hope your box has a lock!

A security locking mailbox is the best defense against mail identity theft. To find a Mail Boss dealer near Sherman Oaks or Hollywood Hills California, click here.
