It should take common sense to get rid of any Scrooges! It's never a good idea to put any cash in the mail or mailbox anyway. The holidays have brought out the crooks and Scrooges for many years, and in these bad economic times I'm not too surprised that someone has been taking advantage of others' trusting Christmas spirit. ID theft has been steadily on the rise for years, so even putting checks in the mailbox and then literally red-flagging to all who pass by that there is something there can also be dangerous! Don't forget that store gift cards so common this time of year do not require any ID to use them and it's quite easy to feel any plastic card inside of an envelope if you try to! Perhaps going to the P.O. to drop off certain things will at least have you see the place before they are eliminated by budget cuts! Take care of each other. Happy Holidays!
