Default Ever had a package stolen?

I've lived in my current house for 3 years, never had a problem with theft...actually I've never encountered mail theft in my entire life. I just came home to a missing package. Luckily it was only $25 worth of speaker wire, and monoprice were generous to send me a new one, but it's enraging to know someone would steal from a private owner. I'm glad it was speaker wire compared to all the things that have been left at my front door, I might need to invest in some security cameras.

Did you check with neighbors? Maybe they took it in so it didn't get stolen and they did nothing wrong in their mind.

My father in law caught a guy trying to steal my package once. When he was opening up the door the guy took off running. What they do is they wait to see if anyone is going to open the door. What pisses my off the most they don't even know what the hell they are stealing, just stealing for the hell of it. Some one stole my sister in law text books before, its sad thats the world we live in.

you can call and request the delivery driver to leave the package at your back door instead.

or if you're there one day when you get a package delivered, you can tell the driver personally.

i always try to establish a rapport with my delivery guys/girls so they'll be more open to doing things for me like that.

it's worth a shot.

In my case the idiot USPS delivery person usually just delivers to the wrong address. It's happened to me on quite a few occasions since I've been living at my current address.

This is a big problem where I live. We have the whole communities mail in lock boxes and the postman is constantly leaving things in the wrong boxes. Plus if you leave something that isn't yours in your box they won't even bother to move it.

If its a front door thing, you can always tell UPS/Fedex/USPS to hold the packages bigger than your mailbox at their location and pick them up.

My Onkyo recv’r was left on my front steps a couple months ago…..the steps face the busiest street around me too.

So there was my brand new recv’r sitting out in the open for anyone to yank. Worst part is it was sitting in it’s own box….so everyone could see what it was too.

Anything of value I always request signature delivery, actually most of the companies I deal with do this (in Canada that is). But I'm mostly home all day so I guess I'm lucky as I know the delivery people by name

I've never had a problem with packages getting stolen but it may be because I've got a pretty big front yard so I live pretty far off from the road, plus our UPS driver usually delivers things around 11:30 and my roommate comes home for lunch at noon so they aren't out long.

We had a Blackberry stolen once. The worst thing was that I had to file a claim through UPS, so for the next 2 ******* years UPS required a signature for EVERYTHING that was delivered to my house, even though I'd lived here 6 years prior with no history. Like most everyone else, I'm not here to sign for anything during the day, so everything that got delivered UPS I'd have to drive across town to the center to pick it up and deal with the awesome staff there.

They finally started dropping things off, but now the driver has a habit of delivering my packages to the other houses in my neighborhood. So I started having everything delivered to work.

Yeah the mail boxes are the same where I live, and it actually happened since I made my last post in this thread. Luckily it was just a replacement belt clip from Otter Box. After I ran the tracking info and saw it was delivered even though we never received it, I called Otter Box and they shipped out two more. Then the next day a new neighbor from across the street rang the door bell and handed a package to me. It was my package from Otter Box. Oh well. At least now I'll have spares.

I would do this, but my work schedule is not the norm, so it's difficult to know whether I would be home or at work when a packaged is dropped off.

Although not a theft of a package, this thread reminded me of this video. For anyone who hasn't seen it, it happened a few months ago where a FedEx driver was caught on someone's CCTV security camera throwing what appears to be a computer monitor or TV over a fence.
