If you rent an apartment in Tampa, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has advice for you. Bring your rent to the office in person. Don’t use a drop box.
ABC Action News says apartment complexes were hit again this month by crooks using wire hangers and glue to “fish out” money orders from those boxes. They say the crooks then use something like brake fluid to change who the money order is made out to. There have been at least two dozen cases of this in Hillsborough County.
