Protect yourself from mail theft

Crime Prevention Tips from the NSW Police: Items such as credit cards, drivers licences and utility statements sent out in the mail include vital personal details of you and your family. In the wrong hands, this information can be used to create false identification and commit crime.

Protect yourself by:

- Always install a lockable mailbox - Always arrange to collect new credit cards from the bank or post office. - Always have mail held at the post office or collected by a friend when you’re away for extended periods. - Never give any of your personal details to people you don’t know or trust.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available unless the author is known to the editor by way of a verified email address or by association.

Others who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
