Make the person that took the check and accepted it for the thief pay back to the woman for his/her not doing the due diligence of getting a picture I.D. of the check casher.

Another in the long line of USPS diversity hires gone horribly wrong!!!!

Stupid statement what the hell does diversity have to do with just being
a damn thief!

Because the vast majority of crimes committed by postal employees are “diversity hires”, which the postal service embraces.

You can call my comment stupid, but the facts support my statement….ask any postal inspector and they will back up my comment.

All “diverse” in this case you’re speaking of after an Americans I assume not all of us steal but of course you’re an idiot so it will probably go over your head.

It’s just a pattern that’s obvious to anyone who keeps up with USPS current events… don’t shoot the messenger.
