    Story Highlights

    The newest traffic congestion for Seattle to manage doesn't involve cars or even streets. As the city grows, sidewalks are becoming more crowded, and technology is bringing new competition for the space.     

    Consumers have contacted Jesse Jones about a new kind of mail theft.

    We talked to a woman who police say had thieves use a fake ID to put a hold on her mail -- and then open up nearly two dozen lines of credit in her name.

    They even bought a dog and had it shipped to Florida on her credit.

    As a result, the woman had to open police cases in Tukwila, Seattle and Mountlake Terrace.

    So, what can you do to avoid this scenario? Monday at 5 p.m. on KRIO 7 News, Jesse shares her story -- and shows you the things consumers can do to protect themselves from identity and mail thieves.   

    Also see all-new episodes of Judge Judy at 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. every weeknight on KIRO 7, and watch all-new episodes of Entertainment Tonight at 7:30 p.m. each weeknight on KIRO 7.
