Are you comfortable with identity theft? Well just keep placing your sensitive info out there on the WWW and watch out for a negative result. Are you sure you want your SSN out there? Your home address, bank acct number, saving and checking acct info, are you sure you want this info floating all around the WWW? All these big financial entities give you this crap about how secure their site is, no problem, no one could ever get their hands on your sensitive info, my ass. Some 15 year old kid who is very computer savvy, who spends a great deal of time on this thing, cruising all around the net, this kid could probably hack just about anything. I have seen people out there who order just about everything on line, including a pie from the local pizza joint, where you have to give your credit card number to purchase their pie. Now I'm just sure the pizza joint has a very sophisticated security system that will protect your Visa card number, sure they do. What happens one day when the "Gubment" decides they want all your pertinent info? Info they have no need to know? What happens when this fantastic WWW takes a gigantic crash one day, and you have to prove you did in fact make those last five car payments, or your last few house payments, but you can't readily prove it with a cancelled check? Then you get to go through months, maybe years, of trying to prove you did indeed make the payments. You may even have to lay out some of your hard earned cash to hire a financial guru, or a lawyer to guide you through the proving process. No thanks, this paranoid old fool is going to continue to pay up the old fashioned way until I lose my right to do so, and that may happen sooner than later. One day all of you trusting souls out there will fall victim, and I shall invoke one of my many favorite sayings, "I told you so".

What do you mean, years of proving it? There will be a record of the transaction in your banks database. If the Gov't wants your numbers, they will get it, internet or not. Just only shop from reputable websites. or use paypal at smaller ones. Your information is out there, one way or another. Remember the Schnuck's debacle? Thathad nothing to do with the internet. You can have skimmers on ATM's, again nothing to do with the internet.
The lesson is, pay attention to your finances, and if you see something wrong, investigate immediately before things get out of hand.

i also use a separate credit card for internet use. i'm old school and write checks to pay my bills. hardly ever use my credit card as i mostly use cash. cash still works and no need to keep track of anything.

Hey, it's not just in Florissant! I received a B'Day card Sat. that was obviously opened with a letter opener. It came in a plastic "apology" bag, the card had an empty paper clip on it. Whatever was paper clipped was gone. I live in the country, the card came from St.L I don't think there is anything that can be accomplished, but, I will take it to my post office today. Lotsa Luck...Huh

the post office system is broke, they lack true vision or leadership, PO union employees can't be fired, there is no discipline, no one really cares.
it is another government failure.

taxpayers pay.

they are only broke because Congress forced them to pre pay their retirements and health insurance for 100 years in 10 years. without that they would have shown a profit over the last 8 years.

imagine if you had to pay for your retirement, your kids retirement and maybe their kids retirement in 10 years. you'd be broke too

The majority of letter mail is processed by automation. So what appears to be tampered mail, very possibly actually got caught up in the machines. This could be caused by paper clips, candy, coins, jewelry, etc. put in the envelope. If this happens, we patch/bag/tape it up the best we can, and send it on its way with our apologies. If you feel that your mail is truly being tampered with, please contact the postal inspectors.

Remember to NEVER send cash through the mail as a general rule. I worked with a guy who used to work at the Main St. Louis post office. He said people went though envelopes looking for money all the time. This was 12 years ago, so it's possible automation has killed or at least slowed this down.

i know several people that have sent money though the mail and it never got there, why they did it i don't know(stupid i guess). isn't a Federal crime to steal from the mail? where is the camaras? where are the supervisors? this should be very easy to stop , if they wanted to. set the mail handlers up and catch the thieves. if it's going on that openly htey are not trying to stop it. catch them and put them in jail where they belong. they are stealing from you and me.

MERRYCHRISTMAS all, if anyone has been offended by my greeting, too bad. I felt a need to revisit this thread based on my experience as of today. My sister sent me a package from down in the southern part of the state and I thought you might like to see the tracking on this little box. Left her town, went to Springfld. MO., left Springfld. MO, went to Peoria IL. 61614, then to Peoria IL 61601......Then to a sort station in Champaign IL. Then to Hazelwood. Then to St. Charles.......then back to Hazelwood.....then back to St. Charles...the tracker said it was delivered on the 18th. Is it any wonder than why the PO is on it's ass.

When did she mail it (how many days did it take to get to you)? Since it was tracked, I assume it was priority mail? Sometimes the post office consolidates in large shipments to save transportation costs. Bottom line is, how long did it take to deliver? I mailed a "flat rate" box to CA and the total cost was $16.85 (it would have been over $35 if not in flat rate box). I dropped off on Monday afternoon and it was delivered on Thursday. Not a bad deal.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
