• Don't use USPS drop boxes. Identity thieves are able to easily "fish" mail out of them. Take your mail inside the post office.
• File your taxes online. Most fraud … View more occurs via snail mail (see above). I use turbotax.com. This is an easy to use program that will still handle complex tax issues such as capital gains, etc.
