Fraud Alert from the Winnetka Police Department


The Winnetka Police Department and United States Postal Inspector are investigating incidents where two outdoor U.S. mail boxes and the Village utility billing mail box were breached. All three boxes are located on Dwyer Court behind the Post Office.

If you mailed an item between December 26 and December 28, 2021, it is likely the item was stolen. If the item you mailed contained a personal check, contact your bank and inform them the check was likely stolen. Request a stop payment on the check, and ask the bank to place a fraud alert on your bank account.

If you discover any fraudulent activity in your bank account, please contact the Winnetka Police Department at 847-501-6034 to file a report.
