How does it go? “Neither rain, nor sleet, nor.........shall keep them from their appoint rounds [of theft?]”
In April 2013 most Federal checks will be Direct Deposit. That should stop the federal theft.
Where’s Newman when you need him???
With today’s banking laws you can’t cash a check (even third party checks) if it’s not in your own name and you already have an account at that partucular bank.
Unless USPS workers are exempt from Dodd-Frank or something.
What am I missing?
Four other defendants, Wendy Frasier, 35, and Daralyn M. Weaver, 31, both of Atlanta; Jabril O. McKee, 25, of Fairburn, and Ohmar D. Braden, 36, of Lithonia, also have pleaded guilty for their roles in the scheme, according to U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.
...Just getting their fair share, after all...
The USPS hires people by quota, not by their qualifications.
What! No pictures of the lovely couple?
At some point, you’ve stolen enough money. Wait, you didn’t steal that. Someone else printed the check and someone else mailed it.
“Eason and Fambro-Echols reflect just a very small percentage of employees who failed to uphold the trust and integrity placed in them,” said Paul Bowman, the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General’s special agent in charge. “The majority of Postal Service employees are honest, hardworking, and committed to providing the timely and reliable service that customers expect and deserve.”
The first part of that statement is actually stating that these people are just a small percentage of those who failed ergo the number who failed is quite large indeed.
I’ve had a couple of incidents over the last 5-6 years with the Atlanta postal service, that makes me not surprised to hear about this corruption. The last one was 2 years ago when I ordered a bunch of books from Christian Book Distributors; it had CBD written all over the box...when it was delivered here in Texas the box had been opened and half the books were gone. Someone had sloppily taped the box together.
When I looked inside two of the books had TIRE MARKS over them, like they had been run over by a vehicle! So I took it to our local PO and filled out the paperwork and left the books and box with them. They said they could trace where the books were lost/destroyed. Turned out it was Atlanta.
This was not the first time that books I had ordered from CBD came in damaged boxes, but nothing like this. CBD made it up to me; sent it all to me again by UPS, no charge, just in time for Christmas. I sure felt badly for them that they had to take the loss.
I couldn’t help but think that it was because it was a Christian company. I’ve never had anything from LL Bean destroyed like that, and I know they come routed to our area through Atlanta too.
