America, we have another problem. Be on the lookout for scum buckets who are mail fishing.

How did we get from Ben Franklin to this? Mail fishing perpetrators are tying strings to objects covered in glue, or a sticky mouse trap. They drop in mailboxes and steal mail. These postal thieves get checks or gift cards and many other personal items people send over the mail.

If you’re a victim of fraud, including mailed sweepstakes, lotteries, on-line auctions, work-at-home scams or chain letters, report your concern to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

If you do not trust the mail, go online, or use the telephone. 1-800-275-8777
