NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Earlier this week, CBS 11 exposed what seems to be an invitation for mail theft all over North Texas and believe it or not, the United States Postal Service is responsible.

Since then, we have received a lot more complaints about overstuffed collection boxes that put your check in the mail at risk.

Sharon Stark took these photos two weeks ago, when she went to her nearby post office branch in Frisco to mail a check.

Stark is just one of several people who contacted us after we interviewed a Plano resident who had two checks stolen that he dropped into an overstuffed collection box on Coit Road.

We received photos and similar complaints about collection boxes in Denton and Rowlett.

Stark has printouts of complaints she tried to file online but… “it wouldn’t go into their system.”

Ironically, the USPS posted a warning in September to customers to be careful because of the growing crime of check washing.
