Three out of five times I go to the post office I have someone elses mail in my box. Makes me wonder who is getting mine and just throwing it away. Does anyone else have a problem with this? If anyone knows who I should contact about this to report it please let me know. Thank you.

I'd be more concerned about someone using your mail to steal your identity!

Call the Appalachian District Office. Luckily, the regional management office for the Postal Service is right here in Charleston! Good luck getting the phone number, though. The managers don't like to hear about complaints and everybody at the Postal Service "looks out" for everybody else. You might get the number from the Charleston Postmaster's office.

You won't have to worry about your problem much longer, anyway. The Tornado Post Office is on the Closure Committee's list.

You might want to consider getting a box at the Saint Albans Post Office while you still can. You don't want to be stuck with a box at the Tornado Post Office when it closes, because everyone will be trying to get a replacement box in Saint Albans and that post office could run out!

Thank you so much for the info. I can understand why they would close it. The people who work there evidently dont know how to read the addresses on the mail. I know I dont work there, but come on. Its a small post office, and how hard can it be to just look at the box number and put it in there.

I will report it never the less, if I can find the number to the postmaster.

You may have to go to the Postmaster's office. It's much more difficult to deny someone what they're asking for when they're looking you in the eye. The Charleston Postmaster's office is at the main post office at 1002 Lee Street East. There's free parking. The office is opposite all the boxes that line the wall to the left of the windows, behind a brass door. The District Office is at the sorting center, next to the regional jail.

I just found this site and see someone else is having problems with the Tornado Post office. Glad to know Im not the only one. Me and my neighbor have been talking about how we get someone elses mail at least 2 or 3 times a week. I am going to file a complaint also.

I get other people's mail all the time. You'd think they could get it right once in a while.

I filled a complaint a few weeks ago. I was just tired of getting other peoples mail every other day and god only knows who has got my mail and just trashed it. I was told it is a federal offence to do that so maybe they would just drop it back in, but you never know. My husband has been gone for 11 years now and I recieve his SSI check by mail. Going to have to change that now. I just dont understand, never had this problem until about 2 or 3 years ago, and I have lived here for 54 years.

The Tornado Post Office is where the Postal Service dumps incompetent employees. They can't be fired because of the postal employees union, so they get reassigned to Tornado.

We are having the same problem here.

I have had the same problem with my mail as well. The post office is a wreck inside and so messy. That guy that used to run it didn't do a bad job - everything was always clean and neat and organized. I think the lady there running it now is too busy doing "other" things.

Why would you expect anything in a place called Tornado to be something good?

Everyone can relax about the Post Office now. I hear that in July of 2012 it will be closed.

The worst thing is, if you complain, that b!tch at the Tornado Post Office throws away your mail! It's happening to me! Thank God we have Topix where we can go to warn people! I hope you're right about that dump closing in July! The people at the Saint Albans Post Office actually do a good job.

The people there seem nice but I really dont know them all that well. The sevice there smells like a cow pasture if you know what I mean. I have had my S.S. check delayed for several days because it went to the wrong box. For those of you younger people who dont think its a big deal,wait until you get old enough to recieve it and you will understand how a few days can mean alot when it comes to getting your money.
