Sick of the post office stealing my mail and have absolutely no idea how I can report it?

Hello all,

I sell stuff on ebay..collectibles, ceramics, beauty items, etc. In the past year, about 5+ of my packages have gone missing..completely VANISHED into thin air. This makes me FURIOUS, because most of the time they are -100 items and my customers are angry and think I am trying to "jip" them, which is not the case. In turn, I have had cases opened on me and received negative feedback, which REALLY hurts my small online store/business.

I print my postage from Paypal and weigh everything PERFECTLY. I mean, it’s just perfect. Nothing crazy in my boxes/packages for them to be suspicious. Also…a few of my customers who HAVE received their items have complained that it was OPENED and then retaped shut. I was SO mad.

I live in New York, the Queens Area, and personally schedule pick ups for my mail, as I have about 5-20 packages, at a time, that need to be sent out. The mail guy comes to get them, personally..so how in the world is this happening??? I am furious. I don’t know how to prove it or WHAT post office I should report, since I’m sure there are about 4 in the area and I have no idea where each package is rerouted after it’s picked up for delivery.

Can someone please help me? This is killing me…utterly destroying my business and costing me SO much money because they stole the item, and I also have to refund them everything…and I lose out on what I paid for postage as well.
Hi, I use Priority Mail with a tracking confirmation number EVERY single time and it has still gone missing. I can click on the tracking number and clearly see that it’s not being updated. Isn’t this as good as insurance? I only wanted to avoid insurance because it is SO darn expensive. But if it helps my packages to NOT go missing, I will start using that. My pick up guy is SO nice and I already voiced this issue to him and he even encouraged me to report the issue because that shouldn’t be happening. Since then, another TWO have gone missing, so I don’t feel like it could be him and that he’s that stupid to steal. He’s the kind of post guy that LOVES his job and does everything by the books.

Anyone good at maths – try this challange ?

At the Post Office in the village of Prime it is only possible to buy 5p and 7p stamps. If just these stamps are available, it is clearly impossible to get all possible values of postage. For example, you are unable to buy stamps at the value of 1p, 2p, 3p, 4p, 6p, 8p or 9p. But what is the largest amount of potage you are unable to obtain in the stamps available. Explain answer please.

Does the post office give free boxes for shipping?

Like lets say you want to ship something to a person that they bought off ebay. Before you do this, can you go to the post office and get boxes? Lets say they send you a money order, do you go and cash the money order, and then go and buy a postage stamp for the box or what?

Also how can I send my box back to the seller? She doesnt answer her e-mails. She accepts refunds if it isnt working, and my product isnt working, so can I just put a note inside the box, and tape it back up, and put it out in the mail? Or do I have to pay to reship it?

What happen if I put a pre-paid International package into a USPS mailbox instead of giving it to an employee?

I tried Click and Ship (via usps.com online) and printed my postage from home using my printer. I dropped the package in a post office drop box last night. When I got home I noticed the instruction sheet said "International packages my NOT be placed in a USPS collection box. Please present to a retail associate in a U.S. Postal Service retail outlet, hand to your letter carrier at the time of mail delivery or schedule a pickup service online at www.usps.com/pickup." What can I expect to happen? Will my package be returned to me?

Isn't Stamps.com a ripoff?

So, I wanted to find out if there was a way to print stamps online.. PayPal shipping does labels but it’s only for parcels, no letters, postcards, etc. You can’t print out a .44 cent stamp, or a .05 cent stamp, or whatever. Anyway I found out you can do this on Stamps.com

The thing is you have to order labels. In other words, it’s costing more than simply buying stamps at the post office.

The good news is that when you start out, they give you free to spend on stamps. And a few sample labels. So what I guess I’m going to do, is I’m going to just use up the and never use it again.

So, the real quesiton is, is there any way to print out stamps and still pay the same as what you’d pay at a post office?

Because this paying for labels thing is essentially the same thing as saying "I want to pay more for postage just for the luxury of printing at home".

Putting too many stamps on an envelope?

I’m sending a friend a letter, and I’m trying to make it unique. So, I bought a bunch of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 17 cent stamps to mail it. Its going international, so I calculated the postage to be like two dollars. So I basically filled the whole letter size envelope with stamps (except where the addresses are). Do you think or know if the post office will reject it for having 51 stamps?
