Video: Cash swiped from mailed cards in Georgia

CANTON, GA – “I know you shouldn’t, but I think kids are usually a lot more excited to get money than a check,” Donna Devery of Cherokee County told 11Alive News on Wednesday.

She and neighbor Kristal Watson admit they know sending cash through the mail is risky and not advised, but that’s how they wanted to surprise several recent high school graduate friends.

A few days ago they began to hear that most of the congratulation cards they’d mailed last week arrived in torn envelopes, but not the cash…like the one that friend Vickie Hunt’s son received.
