How about some bait mail?
I noticed a USPS mail truck at around 6pm motzoai Shabbos (past normal USPS service times) driving erratically near pine street.
Is it possible the thief was using a mail truck?
He went around the block multiple times. Not so slow.
I sure hope I didn’t lose any mail!
Nail the mail and let out on bail!
USPS works past hours often to drop off Amazon Prime orders.
this has been going on for a few months now on bruce and congress as well although it might be the mail carrier themselves….
Why would anyone steal a check? It leaves a trace back to you. Where was the check cashed? Into whose account? Any check cashing business just depositing checks from anyone without some sort of checks and balances is just foolish. Just as guilty and foolish as the person who stole the check.
Great! Hope they pay my bills.
