    My mail was stolen in Bakersfield. It was a hassle. It was the rent for the office of Luckily the rent was being mailed in form of USPS money order. We had to contact USPS and supply copies of everything. After all due processes, we were refunded the money. But I think we were lucky because our loss was a USPS money order and easily refundable. The time and effort we put into getting the money back, was a total waste of time. I hope there will be a solution to mail theft soon.
