Default I need to intercept my package before a scammer/banned member gets it. How?

It used to be that you need to fill out a form 1509 either online or at the Post Office.

However, you can now do all this straight from the USPS home page:

https://retail-pi.usps.com/retailpi/...s/index.action



There is a fee ($11.50) and it must be done quickly (and obviously before the package arrives at its destination).

How it works: https://retail-pi.usps.com/retailpi/...ction!howWorks

Items are intercepted at the initial destination delivery unit and redirected at the request of the mailer. USPS Package Intercept is not a guaranteed service. USPS does not refund the Package Intercept fee if it is unable to intercept and redirect the package.


Customers pay a Package Intercept fee at the time they submit their request on-line. The Postal Service will attempt to intercept and redirect the shipment, but does not guarantee that it will be able to do so. The Postal Service does not refund the Package Intercept fee, including when it is unable to intercept and redirect the shipment. In addition to a Package Intercept Fee, customers must pay Priority Mail postage for all intercepted shipments that are redirected, except those that the customer sent using Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail, and First-Class Mail, for which the Postal Service does not require customers to pay additional postage.


First, verify that your item is eligible for USPS Package Intercept. If your item hasn't been delivered or released for delivery, you can request USPS Package Intercept service.


Check the delivery status of your package >


Registered USPS.com customers can request the service by submitting their request at USPS.com. A credit card is required for payment of the USPS Package Intercept fee. Any applicable postage for sending the intercepted item to a different location will be collected at the time of delivery by a USPS carrier.

DISCLAIMER:

IN MANY INSTANCES, YOUR PACKAGE MAY NOT BE INTERCEPTED. THE INITIAL FEE FOR THIS SERVICE IS CHARGED SOLELY TO PROCESS YOUR REQUEST AND ATTEMPT TO LOCATE YOUR PACKAGE. USPS PACKAGE INTERCEPT SERVICE IS NONREFUNDABLE AND NOT GUARANTEED. YOU ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THE INTERCEPTED MAIL WILL BE REDIRECTED BACK TO THE RETURN ADDRESS, MAY BE REDIRECTED TO A NEW ADDRESS, OR MAY BE HELD AT A POST OFFICE FOR PICKUP. AS A RESULT, ADDITIONAL DELIVERY CHARGES MAY BE INCURRED WITH POSTAGE DUE AT THE APPLICABLE PRICE TO BE PAID UPON DELIVERY OR PICKUP.
