Yes. It can happen to you! Because it just happened to us!
Does your office complex have a community mailbox? If not, what do you do with your outgoing mail each day?
Don't let this happen to you!!!
Two weeks ago we cut our checks to pay our vendors and placed the 20 or 30 checks in the outgoing slot, so that they could be picked up by the mailman.
Well, some one picked them up but not the mailman. Someone took a crow bar and emptied the outgoing mail and delivered mail. It was a few days later and several thousand dollars later before the bank called us about some questionable items. The person who took the checks was very talented and was able to acid wash or actually create new checks and was able to cash them. In one case, we had a check written to our landlord and the person changed the check to his name. Luckily the bank called us to verify the payee and when we told them that the check had actually been written to someone else, they refused to honor it but as you can guess the thief was out the door and gone before the police could get there.
So, what are we doing different. We are now taking all outgoing checks directly to the post office. We had to close our bank account and set up a completely new one. Try going without a bank account or any checks for a week or so. Not EASY! We are looking into creating a postive pay report to send to the bank daily. We are now using the ACH Feature in Sage 100 to pay our bills electronically rather than with a paper check.
Bottomline, identity theft happens to companies as well, protect yourself.
