Any city dweller, especially those living in an apartment, is familiar with the worry of a long-awaited package being snatched from your stoop or building’s mail room. Do you know what to do when your mail actually gets tampered with? Ensure Mail Theft Has Occured First of all, make sure your suspicion that your package or mail was stolen is strongly supported. Have you had things lost before? Sometimes mail simply falls through the cracks. Check that packages weren’t hidden or misplaced by the deliverer or post office, even if you received a notification that it was delivered. Blogger and freelance writer Emily Price ordered an AC unit during the recent California heat wave, and was disappointed to find it missing, presumed stolen, not long after it was marked as delivered online. She contacted the seller of the ordered item ASAP to let them know about the situation. Luckily, they sympathized and offered a refund or to send her another AC unit.
