Postal Service’s Informed Delivery program used in thefts from Indian Hill residents
The Indian Hill Rangers are investigating several cases of identity theft where the suspects have used the United States Postal Service Informed Delivery to help steal from their victims.
Police say three cases have been reported in the Hamilton County community. Thieves have obtained personal information of their victims and used it to request credit cards by mail.
“These criminals are requesting new cards, or replacement cards, being mailed to these addresses,” Officer Keith Lang said. “They, soon after, sign-up for the Informed Delivery and get notified when these credit cards are being delivered.”
Informed Delivery is a program offered through the USPS and it sends pictures of your mail to your desired email address so you know what to expect in the mail.
