Are you Mail Safe?

Mail theft is the fastest growing crime in Australia and the easiest way to steal your identity. Thieves often target high density areas, making it an increasing concern for those living in strata.

While many may think that mail theft is just petty crime, the reality is that it is usually an indication of a much larger fraud operation that is connected to serious organised crime. According to the Australian Federal Police, approximately 5% of the population or 900,000 people lose money annually as a direct result of identity theft.

Crimestoppers have recently launched a campaign to help reduce the threat. To find out how to protect yourself, click here.

Strata schemes are encouraged to review the security of their mailboxes location and design. Should you have any concerns please contact your Strata Choice manager.
