Default Pretty stumped on this one.. USPS issue

Not sure what to do, I know I'll have to wait Monday.

Checked the tracking on a card from ebay, and it states *delivered* which 99% of the time, delivered to your address. I live in a apartment complex, therefore have to have a key to unlock the box.

When I went out to check the box about an hour ago, there was no card. I came in and checked the tracking then and it stated delivered, therefore I went back out since it was dark and I could had missed it. When I went out the box was empty since I picked everything up the first time.

Could it be maybe a mistake from the USPS, and it wasn't actually delivered, however could be here Monday? Or could someone from the post office marked it delivered and stole my card?

Any feedback would be appreciated!

I seriously doubt someone stole your card, first off. I'm guessing either the mailman scanned it and forgot to put it in your box, or he put it in someone else's box by mistake. If you know any of your neighbors, I'd ask them. If not, wait until Monday after the mail delivery and if it's not there, call the PO.

That was what I was thinking, or if I am lucky I'd probably catch him and talk to him, as I'm expecting a few more packages to arrive Monday. I have pretty cool neighbors, they even may have put it in the outbox which is for returned mail by people who don't live here anymore and to stupid to do a address change LOL.

I just wanted to see if anyone experienced this before and what was the outcome, never showed, or did it show the next day which in this case would be Monday.

Btw, I've heard some stories about the post offices stealing things, not around here but other areas. So it's not out of the question.

Calling the PO won't help. They're understaffed and have no way to track it. It was likely wrongly delivered by the PO, and unless you have a great neighbor, I wouldn't count on getting it back.

Keep your fingers crossed. And, of course, the seller - who has a responsibility to get it INTO YOUR HANDS, is in the clear as it was delivered to your zip code.

This happens fairly often and the package will show up within a few days.

For the OP's sake, I hope so. I've never had a package marked delivered that wasn't actually delivered to me, or misdelivered.

Thanks everyone for the replies, like I said I hope to catch the post guy tomorrow as he is delivering, as I have a few more incoming and want to make sure I get those as well! I will definitely update you as I know!

The other part of your stump is yes, you won the vapor mail.
If it shows delivered, its all on you, not the seller
Good luck

it is pretty common for this to happen to me - will see that a package is "out for delivery" to me, and then after it doesnt show up with the mail it will be listed as "delivered." almost always just shows up the next day.

give it one more delivery day and then call the post office - you should be good soon.

Didn't receive it today, however talked to our regular mail guy, he said he wasn't on this route on Saturday, however did sort the mail out for this route. He said a new guy was doing the route, and god knows what he did with it. He said he'd keep an eye out for it, and see what he can find.

What should I do?

Well, I'm ok with the outcome, just got off the phone with ebay, and they're giving me an $10 coupon for further purchases.

Even if the card does arrive someday, I keep the coupon.

odd ebay would give you that considering they had absolutely nothing to do with it.

They said they didn't want to go through the hassle of a case possibly being opened, and everyone getting involved over $8. The buyer suggested a case to be opened..

Asked for partial, that way we both kinda loss something. He declined and stated to open a case. I was very nice about it to explaining what happened.

I get my neighbors' mail all the time. Seems to only happen when there is a substitute carrier. I complained at the post office when the sub left a box out in the rain instead of putting it in our porch like the normal carrier does. The clerk at the post office told me that the guy was a moron and she doesn't know why he still works there.

I had a similar thing happen through an eBay purchased. Seller had over 1000 positive feedback, and online it said confirmed. I have a community mailbox at the end of my street (12 locked boxes). When I contacted USPS they explained since it wasnt insured and scanned delivered that there was nothing they could do. I explained what happened to the seller and told him that I didn't believe he did anything wrong and cut my losses of $42. I just wish I could find the card again for that price!
