The standard aluminum mailbox that sits in front of your home may hold your mail, but today its also an open invitation for identity thieves looking to get their hands on your most private and personal information Â including credit card, bank account and Social Security numbers as well as your checks. Armed with this information, these thieves proceed to use your identity to create havoc in your life by opening up fraudulent accounts, going on credit card shopping sprees, or selling your information on the black market.
If you think this canÂt happen to you, think again. A 2003 study for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) found that nearly 10 million Americans fall victim to identity theft each year. According to the FTC, people whose identities have been stolen can spend months Â even years Â and their hard-earned money cleaning up the mess caused by this type of fraud. In the meantime, victims may also lose job opportunities, be refused loans, education, housing or cars, or even get arrested for crimes they didn't commit.
Fortunately, this can all be avoided with a mailbox that appropriate to the times and aligned with todayÂs home security devices. The Secure Mail VaultÂ from SecureLogicTM (http://www.securemailvault.com) is the first high security curbside residential secure mailbox that protects your valuable mail Â and the critical information it contains Â from identity theft, credit card fraud, mail theft and criminal activity. Fully certified by the US Postal Service, the Secure Mail Vault is engineered with solid seamless steel construction, a dual deadbolt entry - accessible through electronic keypad, and angled mail slot to prevent Âhand entryÂ Â making it nearly impenetrable and providing the best insurance available against mail theft by identity thieves.
The Secure Mail Vault has one of the largest drop chutes of its class and its large storage area can hold stacks of letters, magazines and packages Âsafely holding more than 25 lbs. of mail.
At the same time, the product is beautifully designed and crafted for maximum curb appeal. Both the vault that holds the mail and the electronic keypad are hidden behind an exterior door and are not visible from the street. All seams are handwelded and the product is zinc plated and powder coated to withstand the elements for many years.
Unlike traditional mailboxes that secure to a wooden post with flimsy screws and can literally be carried away with ease, the Secure Mail Vault uses a die cast steel flange that mounts on a solid steel pole to provide the ultimate in strength and durability.
