Has anyone in the area expected a package to be delivered and not have it show up? I've had numerous packages that were delivered to the wrong address and the person who got them didn't have the courtesy to return them. I think I know who it is and don't know what to do about it. Actually I do but I don't want to wind up in jail.

Set up a surveillance camera and catch the crook if you think they are being stolen.

They are not being stolen from my home. What's happening is the postal service sometimes delivers to an address and street that is similar to mine. The people at this other address keep the packages for themselves and don't have the respect to return them.

I have the same problem with my mail carrier. First, I went over to the similar address and gave them their mail, which was delivered to me in error. Then, I asked them to do me the same courtesy. I also went to the post office and talked to my carrier. If it happens again, postmaster!!!!

My wife had three packages that she tracked and showed that they were delivered. One was a lip stick, the second was a pair of lighted snowmen, and the third was a pair of shoes with a blouse. These packages were not delivered at the same time but at different intervals during the year. When the third package didn't show up a few weeks ago, I went to the address in question and knocked on the door. A young girl answered the door and I asked if a package with my address was accidently delivered to her house and she immediately said yes. I heard a man in the background say "it's over there" and she got it and gave it to me. I believe it was because she was truthful that the guy handed it over. I ordered an inexpensive item on line a few days ago as bait and had it delivered to my home. I put it in their mail box and it was never returned to me. That being said, I believe this the household that keeps packages that are accidently delivered to their home for themselves. I'm going to wait a few more days and if it's not returned, I'm going to contact the postmaster as you said and file a theft complaint.

you probably live on a street that has common names, like Washington Dr and Washington Ave. I would suggest when you order something, spell out the whole word DRIVE, AVENUE, STREET, etc. Does this happen to your bills, letters, magazines?

It is only packages that this happened with. I watched a UPS driver park in front of my house and walk to the vacant house next to me with my package! It was a vacuum cleaner and the address was clearly marked on it. My mail box has a number on it and my house is light gray with black numbers which are illuminated at night. I can't make it any easier for UPS or the USPS unless I were to get my own mail.
