My good coworker B dropped my mail for me last Friday because I left the office and forgot to drop it in the outgoing mail box. That envelope had two checks in it, out rent and our pet deposit so imagine how important it was that it gets sent with no hiccups.
B did not know that our building had an outgoing mailbox so he kindly walked to the closest USPS box to drop it in there. When he opened the blue box, he noticed something sticky around the handle but he shrugged off the yucky feeling in his fingeres and dropped the envelope in there. He felt something sketchy was going on so he double checked if the envelope made its way to the inside of the box...and what do you know?! Something sketchy was actually going on! He saw that the inside of the box cover was covered in glue probably to try to have as much envelopes stick on there so people can maybe steal identities and/or just steal people's mail. He was so glad he checked and flicked my mail into the bin. Fortunately, my land lady received the mail and has deposited the checks.
It's unfortunate that people do things like this in desperation. But I'm not writing this and sharing this in my blog to bash those people although I don't condone this act. I shared this to warn people about this scam. It is new to me and might be new to you too so its good that we all know what were getting into when you use the blue USPS dropboxes to send out mail.
