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.
