Check Fraud Scheme at the Mt. Holly Post Office?? USPS 28120

Has anyone else had a check lost or stolen while in the possession of the Mt. Holly Post Office? I just had a check being mailed to my PO Box direct from a friend that I never got. Somehow the check got deposited into a strangers account. This means the mail was actually stolen somewhere in the postal system!

I'm really concerned about this and the further possibility of identity theft. Anyone else?

Hi, I had this happen to me on several occassions too! The first time I mailed a check to Boston. I took it inside the post office myself. It never got to Boston. Somehow, someone stole the check from the post office (not sure which one) and used my account number to write new checks, forge my name and cash them. They were all cashed at Charlotte area banks. They wrote like three checks totaling almost 10,000. Thankfully, the bank covered all the expenses and it cost me nothing... expect worry and time!

It really makes you wonder how these checks are getting gone while they are susposedly safe in the United States Postal System? The second time was a similar situation but the check was being mail to my MH PO Box from Charlotte. I was notified by the bank the same thing happened again! Both times the bank suggested I close the hyjacked account and open and new one, which of course means getting new checks and it's quite a hassel overall.

I don't understand why the Police or authorites don't go after those stealing the checks?!?

In all my cases the bank said they would never catch the person who cashed the check and they knew what amounts to keep the checks under dollar wise to avoid getting caught. All banks have fraud dept's which apparently deal with this issue 24/7. Again, it seems the stem of the problems begins with the checks being stolen while in possession of the USPS. What a sham!

ps. I frequently get other folks mail, at least once a week. Once I got a 90K check made our to Spruill Chevorlet. Too bad I couldn't keep it!!

It's getting pretty violent at our MH post office. The other day, I saw a postal employee lick a stamp.

I know what you mean. Now if you have a PO box they want you to give them 2 types of ID!! I had it for over 10 years and half of them still don't know who I am. What gives?

I recall the good old days when Hollace was behind the counter in the old location downtown. It was like living in Mayberry! I miss him.

I like both ideas above, but to be serious, I hate to say it but maybe the problem down there is our local postmaster...

sometimes when I go to get my mail at the post office I can hear the talk behind the boxes. I don't take the kids with me or my mom. I don't want them exposed to the language. I dread my kids hearing that later in school when they are older, but try to limit it until I have a chance to teach them to resist it, now it is at the post office too.

When I first moved to MH, Butch was there. What a friendly person. He knew everybody and always had something kind to say or funny or was singing behind the counter. Hate that he had to go off and retire!

I lived in Mt Holly back then and mailed a birthday card back in Sept. 2009, and walked it inside myself and there was ample postage to mail it so it would arrive in time but for some odd reason the card never made it nor was it never returned back to sender……don’t u postal workers know that it is a federal offence to tamper with the mail. I was always getting someone else’s mail years before and complained to the post master about people getting my mail that was honest and would give it to me. There is still an original version of MS Office 2007 out there that I never received that someone is enjoying that is worth around $300. Just by saying that the Mt Holly Post Office workers know who I am because I made a fuss over it that also tells me u knows who I was sending a birthday card to that never made it out there too. I believe it is time that a federal investigation is opened up to bring up these people up on charges for tampering with the US Mail. If enough people mail in a complaint that is not mailed at the Mt Holly Post Office then your complaint will make it to the FBI. Better yet I just called one of my relatives that work for the govt. that can see the FBI get my complaint. Everyone else that has had problems with receiving others mail or your mail not making it to where u mail it to, just open up the phone book on the inside cover and on one of the first 2 pages the FBI’s phone number is there. Also, there is a can of spray that a person can order off the internet that can be used to spray any envelope that will allow them to read what is inside and then it will dry in 30 seconds and the envelope never has to be opened too. This could be one way that is being used to gain access to bank accounts or to cash anothers check. I say report them all to the FBI, because this has to go beyond the postal service for this to continue to go on without anything being done about it. Lets stop chatting and bust them.
