There are now reports of at least 35 recent mail thefts from Burbage Road, Dulwich Village, Gilkes Crescent, College Road/Woodyard Lane, Court Lane Gardens, Calton Avenue, Pickwick Road, and Desenfans Road. Local MP Helen Hayes is taking it up directly with the Police and Royal Mail on behalf of everyone who has suffered a loss. She has a map showing the locations, plus an anonymous list of those who have experienced cards or bank accounts being compromised.
Those reporting back to her should include people who have missing statements, usually John Lewis credit card statements, as this has been the precursor in some instances, to having a card issued to a third party, unknown to the account name. But please make it clear you have not suffered a loss at this time but have told JLP a statement is missing.
Your email should be headed Royal Mail in the subject line. You should then give your full name, address and the customer complaint number given you when you reported the loss. If for some reason you did not report this to Royal Mail would you please still report what happened to your post/credit cards/bank loss to Helen so that she has a full picture of the situation in our pretty small area.
Here is a very useful advice list prepared by Lovelace Road Residents Group:
