TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police are encouraging people to take advantage of a tool from the U.S. Postal Service to help identify mail theft.
The service is offered for free on the USPS website and is called Informed Delivery. The post office scans letter-sized parcels that are delivered, excluding junk mail, and lets people sign up to see what they are supposed to receive every day.
Usually, victims of mail theft don't know their mail has been taken until someone has already used their personal information or taken money from their mail or accounts.
While the program doesn't prevent theft, it empowers people to be aware of when their mail is taken so they can take the proper steps to protect their information early.
