25 Investigates: Mail stolen from collection box outside local post office
25 Investigates has learned that Needham Police are investigating mail theft from a blue collection box located right outside the US Post Office on Great Plain Ave. Several people who mailed checks from the box in late August have already reported check fraud.
A Needham woman, who asked not to be identified told Investigative Reporter Ted Daniel that five of the seven checks she dropped in the box on August 28th were washed and cashed.
Check washing is a process that involves changing the name of the payee and often the dollar amount. She said she was left with $30,000 in unauthorized debits on her Bank of America checking account.
