The meth addicts/homeless people are caught stealing mail all the time
In September 2017, we had mail stolen from our outgoing mail box. They were looking for checks

They took the checks and counterfeited them. This is standard practice by big crime rings out of LA. Your victims are most likely in this scenario.
