    I was one of the victims of this scam. My check was taken out of the mail box and the amount as well as who it was written to was changed. I caught this quickly by checking my account on line and was surprised how quickly the check had gone through the mail and was cashed and than I saw the amount. I will no longer put checks in the mail I will take them directly to the post office.
