SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Reports recently claim checks mailed are no longer safe. The U.S. Postal Service denied those claims.
U.S.P.S. staff says there is no problem with mailing checks. U.S.P.S. leaders said there is no warning or recommendation not to send them.
“The Postal Service delivers about 130 billion pieces of mail over a year to 163 million customers,” said Paul Shade with the U.S.P.S. “It still remains the most secure way to transmit anything from any type of mailing.”
Shade said he is confident the security works.
“They really don’t need to feel nervous about sending you the check,” said Shade.
Shade said to protect your mail, drop it off at the post office or their blue boxes.
“When you’re utilizing the blue boxes, it’s also imperative to check the time that that is going to be picked up,” said Shade. “You don’t want that mail sitting in any place overnight.”
