Three Post Office employees charged with stealing credit cards in $1.3 million scheme

Wa Ex:

Three Postal Service workers were arrested on charges related to a $1.3 million fraud and identity theft scheme in which they allegedly swindled credit cards from mail they were delivering, according to the Justice Department.

In addition to the three post office workers, six others were involved in the scheme and are facing various charges that could entail over 30 years behind bars, per the DOJ. The fraud machination took place in New York and New Jersey starting in 2018.

“These nine defendants, three of which are postal employees, sought to enrich themselves by stealing mail directly from hundreds of postal customers,” U.S. Postal Inspection Service Inspector Daniel Brubaker declared.

“They further compounded their crimes by committing identity theft against those customers to facilitate their elaborate scheme to defraud several national financial institutions,” he added. more

  1. Those mail in ballots are positively, without doubt, safe with the United States Postal Service.
    Honor and integrity is our middle name.

  2. I’m old enough to remember when employees at one of the main US postal sorting facilities in Houston were caught stealing colored envelopes because they might have money/checks inside

  3. As a plea deal they have been offered a lateral transfer position with the IRS to help fill the 87,000 positions.
    The postal employees have experience with fraud and theft and will be placed in a supervisory position at the IRS.

    I hear a lot of Ammo does not appear to be getting to its purchasers by way of USPS, Shit Brown, & F@ck Ex.

    General theft or something else?

    Any thoughts?

    The postal worker at our small pilot post office who was right off the boat from India, was the worse ever. He lasted maybe 2 weeks before they sent him back to Sacramento. Doubt he’s trainable,no speaka English.

  6. My brother from another mother calls his postal delivery person “the fat, black lazy lesbian”. He himself is gay.

  7. Who, besides the USPS, uses the term “postal worker” to describe the mailman?

    There has been something going on, on our mail route that points to mail theft by people at USPS. Three times in the past year I’ve had payments by check from clients that never arrived. In all three I kept a close watch of when they should have arrived and advised my clients to cancel them. So far no one has attempted to cash them, but those checks never surfaced again. I personally collect payments now whenever I can. I don’t trust the USPS. It may be like the FBI, where it may have a lot of trustworthy employees, but one bad apple will spoil the whole barrel.
