one day i went to get my drivers license replaced, the very next week the mailbox got broken into. i guess coincidentally my drivers license was in the mail box too. what did they do with my drivers license? went to my bank, request a new debit card, and took money. according to the notes left on my profile, the teller told me the thief walked in with my id, impersonated me saying i lost my wallet, requested a replacement debit card, and also changed my pin on the spot "just to be safe" cus of the lost debit card. the thief proceeded to withdraw $15K cash advance on my visa via 3-4 visits during a period of 1 week.

i didnt know all this was happening until a week later when i tried my dabit card at an atm. then they talked to me about what happened.
This is why I don't like the pictures on current DL's. With a full-color picture the thief is going to have to find someone who looks a lot like you, and that's not always easy to have a large pool of fellow thieves you can try to match a DL picture to. The current digitized B&W pics are crap. So are the signatures.

As gYU mentioned, did you get your money back? I would have expected the bank to ask a few security questions beyond just having your DL (my bank, for example, has asked me to list a few transactions I made recently for verification).


This is along the lines of what I thought the banks/CC companies should do: when you open an account your picture is taken and stored on the banks computer. Whenever a teller brings up your account your picture also comes up. I personally would have no problem with the bank having my mug shot - they know just about everything else about me anyway. For POS/CC terminals the picture would briefly show up on the stores hand-held terminal (say for purchases over $100) when your CC is used. The merchant could look at it while printing off the receipts from the terminal and the picture disappears as soon as printing is done. To increase security your picture would only be sent to the terminal when the transaction is approved (so crooks couldn't just swipe your card all over the place to get a good look at your picture).


Ahhh, I'm rambling. The CC companies won't do this. Although they lose billions in fraud, it's apparently not too serious of a problem for them since they aren't spending money to install these types of measures.

it happens a lot everywhere. The ONE thing you can do to protect yourself is to check your mail everyday. These guys probably only work overnight, so if you check your mail after work everyday, you won't have to worry about it.

Yes the bank did credit me the amount of money that was taken from me. What pissed me off was how easily the bank allowed everything to happened, although in the end i didnt loose any money, it was a big hassle to cancel n fix everything. Whats even more pissing is i went to the richmond rcmp with all the paper work the bank gave me stating all the fraud transactions to file a police report n the rcmp just shrug me off n said these paper work doesnt prove anything...

Reminds of the time I was in high school and our lockers kept getting broken into. Turned out the person who was doing it was also breaking into mailboxes.

Glad you got your money back. RCMP are too busy catching vacationing speeders on highway 3.

They are very easy and can be effective.. something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-SPY-Vehicle-Car-GPS-GSM-GPRS-Realtime-Tracker-Drive-TK102B-Support-TF-Card-/390647951585?pt=US_Tracking_Devices&hash=item5af46eb0e1
Technically they are easy to use, put in a sim card, call the phone and that's it. Logistically not so much.. eg are you going to stay up night after night? What if you are at work?

Another problem with a mailbox is it is metal, it makes a pretty good faraday charge. A tracker not properly configured will have GPS and the cell phone in polling mode all the time, drinkup up juice.. so you have to charge it every day etc. Requires dedication and chances are one group of thieves come, it will be replaced with another. The solution is not to put your mail in such vulnerable position, get a secure PO box and just skip this mailbox.

That's what happens when mix my trigger happy failing with my 6th grade reading comprehension lol.

Lived in Surrey all my life, never once have I been robbed or experienced theft in my home or my vehicle. 2 motorcycles in the garage with keys in them at all times...mail comes to my home in an unsecured mailbox....we have an alarm system installed but never had the need to use it. 28 years and counting....no problems.

Thief #1 uses his bare hands. No gloves = fingerprints and contact DNA. Surrey RCMP = busy and would not fingerprint or swab for DNA for this.

I say spread the video out everywhere as much as you can and someone will recognize these goofs.

So a update:

Criminal tried to cash one of my friends business paycheques, tried to transfer it into his own account. Bank denied and now they gave his account to the police. Supposedly it might actually be his own. LOL

At least if he gets busted is a Federal crime and it won't be as easy to get off as a normal.
