A victim of a crime called us very disturbed about the failure of law enforcement to act upon his US Post Office mail box being broken into and as a result his mail was stolen that contained newly issued credit cards. The client retained us to find out who broke into his Post Office Box. Since his credit cards were stolen fraudulent charges were made into the thousands of dollars. To add insult to injury his 1099’s were also stolen and that enabled the thieves to acquire his and his wife’s social security numbers. Law enforcement at the state and federal levels were notified but hadn’t done anything. Inside of three weeks, we identified the suspects, then located their place of residence. We brought all of that information and documented evidence plus a videos that was taken of the suspects inside the stores where they used the stolen credit cards to a United States Postal Inspector. Further investigation revealed that the same suspects had been breaking into US Post Offices Boxes throughout two Counties in Southern California and had subsequently charged hundreds of thousands of dollars on stolen credit cards. They even applied for new credit cards in the name of their victims but requested they be mailed to their own Post Office Boxes. Who were they? The ring leader had just been paroled out of a Federal Prison for the exact same crime we caught him for. He brought his wife and adopted adult daughter into his scheme along with with his daughter’s heroine addicted boyfriend. Within a week the US Attorney issued Federal Search and Arrest Warrants on all of the suspects and found nearly all the loot in their home. End result, those bad guys are going away for a very long time.
