Default what to do if the post office delivered to the wrong address?

I was suppose to receive a card today but the post office made a huge mistake by delivering it to the wrong apartment number. Is there anything I can do, when in fact I have proof they ship to the wrong address. Will they refund my money that I lost on the card if they cant find it?

Go to the address it was delivered to and ask for your package. They have no right to open your mail or even accept it if it was signed for.

Just be nice about it though, most people will give it to you.

Going through the post office will be a nightmare trust me.

Because I have proof from the delivery signature confirmation of someone signing my name and putting the wrong address in the address of recipient line. I cant believe the mailman/women didnt even check for ID. This really shock me.

Yeah I had a Bobby Hull auto it was "dlvd" on Jul 11 as the tracking number stated, however I never received it needless to say after going to the PO them saying well it says "dvld" so #@#@#@#@ off lol, my neighbor asks me on a Sunday July 21st if I am missing a package?

Long story short I got it in great condition but the PO was no help...

Mailmen aren't required to check ID. Ebay/paypal aren't going to help you. If the seller insured the package, he will have to file the USPS claim. You can't.

All I can say is the USPS sucks. I cant see why they cant ID someone before they deliver a package that a require signature. The sad thing is that the neighbor that they gave it to is a lady so how the heck can she sign for me? no wonder USPS is laying so many jobs off because some of their employees are dumba$$. Before I accuse my neighbor of stealing my package I need the mailman/women to give me some information.

I don't understand why they would sign your name unless they had the intention of stealing your package.

I actually work for the post office as a carrier.... No one is actually being laid off, it's in our union contract. They're just eliminating positions as people retire, offering early retirement, and consolidating routes and rural post offices.

Signature confirmation only requires a signature, what it does is prevent the carrier from leaving it at your front door or putting it into the parcel locker. The carrier is only required to obtain a signature.

What you're thinking of is "restricted" delivery where only the person it is addressed to can sign for it. ID is required for this, doesn't matter if they've delivered to your house everyday for the past 20 years. This does cost extra though.

So can you explain why the PO delivered to the wrong address in the first place? You explained everything else so explain how someone can deliver to a completely different address and sign for a package that ISN'T theirs...

It's happened to me before. I printed out the DC info from the USPS website and caught up to the mailman. He retraced his steps and found the package a few doors down. TALK TO YOUR MAILMAN AND HAVE THE INFO IN HAND !!!!

Sure, that's actually two different questions involving two different people though.

How did it get delivered to the wrong address?

1) The delivery address was wrong, it happens

2) The shipping label got smudged so parts of it was not legible.

3) There was no apartment number on label. This happens ALL the time. I literally see this everyday

4) The mailman just spazzed out and delivered to the wrong address

Why did the OP's neighbor sign for it?

1) Neighbor didn't look at the label. Most people don't, when the mailman says "Hi I just need a signature for this parcel." People will just sign without much thought

2) Neighbor did know it wasn't theirs and still signed for it

The OP said the signer signed the OPs name.

Well then it's a bit of both. Mailman spazzed and neighbor took it or shipping label is bad and neighbor took it.

I just have a problem with lack of accountability on the PO and the mail carriers part. This has happened to me recently as well and the I've been SOL and lost $195 because of incompetence. And yes the address was right, I live in a house not apartment, and I have an uncommon name.

How is it going to cost them a pretty penny? Did you have insurance? Proof of what? That your neighbor signed for your package in your name?

If you know where the package is why are you getting you're panties in a wad? Grow a pair,take the proof you have over to the address you supposedly have and nicely ask for your package, if you have no luck then go to the PO with your proof and get it settled. Man how old are you,10?

I totally feel for the OP, I really do. It sucks to not have your package, mine was suck in transit for a good 3 weeks. Turns out it was in a seemingly empty container down in LA for a while.

iBLeeDBaTTLeReD does bring up a good point. Why sit here and make a forum post when you can just go knock on the door and ask nicely for the parcel?

Im going to fight this until the end, and I am going to make the post man pay for his error so he wouldnt do it again to someone else, because if your unsure dont ship it.
