Finally, a GREAT article about identity theft protection. Experts always recommend shredding personal documents but not a locked mailbox, and ironically most of the documents people so diligently shred come in their unlocked mailboxes!!!
Many people don't realize the role that stolen mail plays in perpetuating ID theft. In fact, with an unlocked mailbox most people don't even realize when their mail has been stolen unless someone finds discarding junk mail, or the criminal happens to be caught (for something unrelated) with your stolen mail. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that most victims of ID theft do not know how their information was compromised.
In the 21st century, mail is no longer safe sitting in an unlocked mailbox. Just like it says, it's not a matter of IF but WHEN. Use a high security locked mailbox like the Mail Boss to keep your information from would-be identity thieves!
