    I just picked up a package a friend had sent me through the mail and someone had already picked it clean, all I got was tissue paper. I'm thinking the postman left it outside of the mail room and someone got to it before the manager of the building. Bastards!

    I'm already dealing with someone using my credit card number to sign up for various Book of the Month clubs. Sometimes I really hate people.

      Sorry to hear about that, some people are really awful and so selfish.  Its like they truly don't care what hurts other people.

    That sucks UW.  I had two packages stollen from my doorstep a couple yrs ago.  I got home from work and saw the packages, went inside, let the dogs out, changed out of my uniform etc.  I went to retrieve the packages 20-30 minutes later and they were gone.  Whoever took them couldn't have known what was in there.  I lost about $135 in bully sticks and a $100 satelite radio.

    I'm so sorry that happened to you, UW -- and RMC!

    You guys seriously need to move where I live. Almost nobody locks up their house, most people just keep their keys in their cars so they don't lose them, and you can leave pretty much anything you want outside and it won't move unless you put a sign on it that says "Free." At least we get some return on our way-too-high tax dollars!

    That is really unfortunate. 

    I used to work for the customer service call center f a large office supply store.  They would put the customers credit card number right on the outside of the box.  I talked to a customer once who had someone from the delivery center steal her credit card number and use it to call phone sex hot-lines!

    I heard from the person who sent it. Thankfully it was only a fridge magnet from Costa Rica. I bet they were pissed when they opened it smile from now on, everything gets delivered to work.

    When you get ripped off, whether it's a UPS package or a lawnmower, sometimes you can ID the culprit by keeping an eye on the local want ads and Ebay. See if someone with a local address is selling a lot similar stuff.
