Tampering with mail is a federal crime and fraud risk

Dear Experian,

Lately, someone has been tampering with my family’s mail. Mail pieces that contain card-like shapes have been rubbed down so that an impression of the card shows through on the outside of the envelope, and the mail piece containing my wife’s renewed driver’s license arrived opened (or at least unsealed). What should I do?
