Sometimes the tracking says where they leave it. Did they leave it somewhere different? I once had a package say delivered but I couldn’t find it.. when I read the tracking number, the driver said they had stuck it under a desk we had out front and I hadn’t checked there. Could it be around a corner or under something?

That’s so unfortunate! Sometimes low lifes do follow the trucks and nab the packages. So sad. But glad you didn’t lose out on the money!

Oh no that sucks!!  At the very least, it’s good the company will refund you 🙁

It might be too late now, but I have had tracking statuses change to delivered when actually they didn’t get delivered until a few hours later (like, at the end of the day).  I don’t remember if that was UPS or USPS though, and I live out in the burbs.  Maybe that’s what’s going on here??  But it sounds like you’ve already checked >_<*

Unfortunately, there are low-lifes everywhere. Can you arrange for packages to be delivered to your workplace, a friend or family member who will be at home, or ask that you be able to pick it up in future?

That sucks! Ive had this happen with amazon and they sent me new stuff but the day the new stuff got here so did the other package.  I think they mustve delivered it to the wrong house and it took my neighbors a few days to get it back to me. Maybe the ups guy in that neighborhood is dyslexic!

Can you have it delivered to a postal outlet instead? or a UPS store or something?

That happened to me once, luckily it was just coffee! Now whenever we have anything valuable to be delivered, we send it to FI’s office or make sure it has to be signed. Sorry!!

It’s a bad economy and desperate people probably realize people are sending a lot of gifts to each other right now.

Good thing you’re not stuck with the loss.

That’s awful! A couple was just arrested in my area for following a UPS truck around and stealing the packages off the front porches 🙁 People can be so horrible.

Have you called UPS to see that it was actually delivered? We thought this happend mad turned out it was still on the truck not yet delivered!
