Just wanted to give people a heads up. The USPS starting to do really underhanded things.

I don't understand any mail service not knocking on the door, but I can let that pass.

I cannot let pass the fact that despite signature conformation (I really wish I had screen caped the tracking page) a package was left outside on my porch in the rain. The signature conformation sticker no where to be found.

When I went to check the tracking it no longer said signature conformation. I believe the shipper when she says it WAS on there, because I saw it online before the change.

I was lucking she wrapped the petticoat (for my wedding dress) in plastic or it would have been ruined.

I've also had them shove a signature conformation inside the mailbox once, and it got bent up...but that's a different story.

It may just be the USPS in my area, but I thought I'd give out a warning.

Wrap EVERYTHING you send in plastic, and keep an eye on the tracking to make sure it stays signature conformation if that is how it is sent.

I've cross posted this to the Fursuit community, however I figured other artist would want to know this as well.

Sorry if this doesn't belong here.

Ironically it's UPS that does that where I'm at. My sister in law deals a lot with those seatbelt purses? Harvey's bags I think they are called. And They are always mailed to her via UPS and ALWAYS they get sent to the house behind her's or, on one occasion we caught the Guy delivering the purse, actually stealing them. We found this out when an empty box came to her door that was re-wrapped with the actual UPS tape.

FedEx is the ONLY place I use to send anything. I have yet to have a problem with them in any way shape or form and the staff is wonderfully kind. The prices can be daunting, but it's worth the quality service you get.

Very sorry to hear about this. And everyone elses horror stories of this USPS. Will definately avoid them if ever I find myself in need of a mailing service out of my own country.

I have had a problem with FedEx. I sent some wedding rings with them, and paid for the "Direct Signature Required" option, or whatever it's called- and they dumped the package, with NO signature, someplace behind the house. When I raised a stink they refunded the $2 extra that this option cost me- though if the rings had been lost or stolen, I don't expect they'd have been willing to refund that several hundred $.
