In the last couple months I've had two (2) packages disappear. The Post office give a tracking number to tell when your package arrives; my last one was (supposedly) delivered this past Monday. I spoke with the carrier here; he said that he scanned and put it at my door. Well, lo and behold I come home that evening...no package!

Me and another resident here have both had packages disappear...I have a sneaking suspicion as to who it MIGHT be and if I catch this person taking or tampering with someone else's mail...my wife had best hold me back 'cause I'LL be the one get locked up after what I do to the low-life!!!

So now I guess I'm out of a car, and maybe file a police report.

I am surprised the carrier would leave it. If something comes here, Canada Post and no one is home to receive it, a notice is left and you pick it up at the closest post office. That sounds like a terrible system.

It's actually a great system. I would hate to have to make a trip to the post office every time I got a package. I have boxes left on my porch all the time. 16 years and never one gone missing.

Whether or not a signature is required is up to the shipper. If they ship it using a method that requires a signature, then the postman won't leave it without a signature. If not, then you take your chances. If you have problems with your neighbors, you can always tell your postman never to leave packages if no one is home.

Wouldn't be a great system in my neighborhood.;):p

Where I live I do not have home delivery. I only have a P.O. Box. So I have to go to the post office to get all my mail. That way I know it stays safe and dry in all kinds of weather. If you suspect one of the neighbors go talk nicely first and if no reaction call the law in.

Did just as you said, farmer. I let ppl know and filed a police report. Just got a call from a detective who's investigating. Now the ppl here are on notice and the management is watching.
