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.
