    I sent a nice VNDS pair of Laneys, that altogether I spent $300 on to cop some VNDS Grapes and nothing came into his postoffice for a month.

    About a month after I sent it, I get this in the mail.



    The address that was on my box, was cut out with a knife or something and I assume it got stolen because I had that address well secured to the box. I can onlyassume that the USPS hires people with criminal backgrounds, because what that person did to me was a federal felony, stealing my mail.

    Unfortunately it wasnt insured so all I can do is not give USPS anymore of my business and recommend the same to you guys.

    That's why you insure it for $201 and it requires a signature dummy...Woulda cost you $4.00

    about 5 years ago, the postoffice gave us a note in our mailbox to come into their branch...
    turns out they just caught some mail thief in the neighborhood, and gave us a huge box of all this mail that had been stolen from us the past 2years...christmas cards, birthday cards, junk mail, everything

    ever since then we got a p.o. box

    Obviously he didn't insure it, but that bright pink barcode sticker is for signature confirmation.

    I think I got some shoes that I scheduled for a pickup stolen, because the buyer said he never got them. I know for a fact I shipped them, but obviously theywere never scanned so PayPal gave him all his money back [​IMG]

    Yea I was more worried about the package arriving at the buyers door, and him lying that he never received it so he wouldn't send me his shoes, thats how Ifigured my mail would get stolen, not by a USPS employee, which is why I didnt go with insurance.

    10 years ago I won this MJ prize from Upper Deck. Never received it. Wrote the company and complained numerous times, and eventually received a letter tellingme that it had already been shipped and there was nothing they could do about it. [​IMG]
