INDIANA, USA — Mail theft, delayed mail and missing mail has been a major problem for postal customers, with many people reporting they sometimes don’t get mail for several days.
One Indiana family has the opposite problem: They get too much mail and are at wit’s end trying to stop it.
Their mail carrier has been getting a workout, bringing stacks of letters to one older woman at her Lawrenceburg home, with most of them requests for money.
“Yesterday she got a whole stack of letters,” Beard said. “And this box is filled with a month or two of mailings.”
Most of the letters are from legitimate charities, but Beard said her mom has a tough time saying no to requests for donations.
“It tugs at her heart, and she has a big heart,” Beard said.
