Learn How the Postal Inspection Service Protects You and Your Business

With every piece of mail – a birthday card from Aunt Sue; a monthly payment; a bill; or a magazine – there is an expectation that it is going to be delivered. Intact. On-time. And not rifled, read, or stolen. Protecting the mail – your mail — has been the responsibility of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service since its establishment in 1775. At this workshop, you’ll learn how Postal Inspectors – the USPS’s law enforcement and security branch — investigate mail theft and provide prevention tips to help keep your mail secure. In addition to protecting your mail, Postal Inspectors are responsible for protecting the Postal Service’s revenue. If you’ve ever thought about buying discounted postage advertised online, think again. It might be counterfeit. This workshop will show how Postal Inspectors detect and investigate counterfeit postage scams to protect the Postal Service’s revenue and bottom line. Don’t miss out on how you can help protect your mail and the Postal Service’s revenue.
