Mail safety

Use Precautions
with your Mail
and your Trash

Use Precautions with your Mail

Make a habit of placing outgoing mail in a collection
box or at your local Post Office.  If you are going to
be out of town or unable to pick up your incoming mail,
ask a friend to retrieve your mail or request your Post Office to hold it for you.

Use Precautions with your Trash

Consider investing in a shredder.  Don’t make the mistake of carelessly tossing out credit card statements with courtesy checks enclosed, credit card offers, mail, or any other paperwork that may contain personal information.  Shred these items or tear them up finely so that a “dumpster diver” won’t be able to glean any facts from your trash.
