EN­SURE YOUR MAIL BOX IS SAFE, SE­CURE

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

I would like to re­mind res­i­dents to make sure their mail­box is cleared of mail each day and, if pos­si­ble, se­cure your mail­box with a lock. There have been re­ports of mail be­ing stolen from let­ter­boxes – par­tic­u­larly those from unit blocks and town­houses where there are large num­bers of post boxes in one lo­ca­tion. Thieves of­ten tar­get mail­boxes to not only try and get bank cards or cheques but also to ob­tain your per­sonal in­for­ma­tion that may be used in fraud-re­lated of­fences. If you are go­ing away make sure you have a trusted friend empty your let­ter­box or or­gan­ise for Aus­tralia Post to hold on to your mail, or con­sider a post of­fice box.
