Mail Carrier Stealing My Mail

by all4email
(Far Rockaway, NY)

I have been complaining about my mail carrier, who has been returning and stealing my mail for a number of years. I wrote letters to the Councilmen, Congressman, Dept. of Justice, NYC Public advocate, and the postmaster; I received no response. This is pure rasicum, the mail carrier is also a neighbor, the post office is refusing to change his assignment to a different post office. Also this is not is first time stealing a persons mail.

MAIL TAMPERING IS A FEDERAL CRIME. This man should be in jail! Why is he able to continue his RACIAL INJUSTICE? I refuse to move; as did his last neighbor.

what a shame to have someone working for you and give you a bad name
by: Anonymous

its so shameful for a mail carrier to be stealing from the mail. I had a mail carrier going in my mail to. it was hard for me to believe that was going on. I mailed mail to myself just to see would it come back to me resealed and it did. I reported that mail carrier and nothing was done. that mail carrier started knocking on my apartment door and writing on my mail after I report her, I had to move/ when I read about a mail carrier was shot on the job I believe they were going in someone mail and the person just went off.

My mail carrier harressed my mother-in-law the last few years of her life. We live right behind her and the day we buried her she stopped and my husband told her she had passed. She then stopped the mail even though my husband's name was on both the savings and checking account. The mail is only held for 10 days and then sent back but we caught what she had did in time and went down with the will to have her mail sent to our house. I found out she still refused to delivery as she said the proper paperwork had not been filled out but higher ups told her she better. Now she haresses us. She has actually been in a grocery store yelling at my husband and calling him a f---ing stalker. Does no good when you report all the things she has done. I found out that another resident has filed a protection order against her so she can no longer delivery their mail

You have every right to set up a pinhole web cam that can prove he is stealing your mail. He doesn't have to know that your doing it. This will allow you to handle the situation legally and logistically will put you in control of the situation. Pinsize cameras cost less than 25.00 and are easy to install. I will my situation was this easy to deal with. Then you can take it to an attorney, law enforcement even the news or better yet shame him on YOUTUBE. That has been a big thing these days..

Postermaster in Verona PA refuses to investigate reported mail theft
by: Anonymous

I just discovered that my mail is being sent back as non-existent address when I've lived here 23 years. Bank statements are also being sent back. When I called for replacements, they never came either, and for some odd reason, no mail at all was delivered to my home on the day they were to arrive. Postmaster said I should have received a weekly newspaper that day but it was not delivered. This is how I know the carrier is lying and stealing my mail - she lied and said she delivered it. Nope. She's lying, and the postmaster is protecting her...says carrier will be fired, so she's not addressing this issue. Postmaster brushes this crime off with flippant cracks like,
that would never happen, someone else is stealing your mail (to which I replied, why would someone steal a weekly flyer when they are in every one elses mailbox), Im wrong - end of story. USPO consumer advocate said to report to OIG and they won't take the case. More SHAM departments for pork gov. employees to collect paychecks under the white hating obamma regime.

We have been harassed by a crazed and paranoid mail carrier for over a year

Our mail carrier had accosted my and my leashed dog 2 times. The first time my dog was going to the restroom and we were standing near a 3 foot tall mini lemon tree. My back was turned toward him. He walked up from behind me and started screaming "Why are you trying to AMBUSH me?" "Why are you hiding behind that tree?"
I was so startled. I turned around and he was walking closer and closer to me. I asked him what he was talking about. Why would I hide or ambush anyone? Not to mention it was about 108 degrees that day! I tried to calm him down and tell him I have been nothing but nice to him. He continued to scream. The neighbors came out of their home and heard him (extremely aggressive, angry and paranoid) They asked him what the problem was 2 times. The carrier refused to answer and walked off. He really frightened me and I went straight to the post office. Was told no managers or supervisors were there and to come back Monday. Which I did. I made a report with the Supervisor, who seemed like she was bored when I told her. I asked if she wanted the names of the neighbors and their address. She said it wasn't necessary!. Anyway, the day this happened my dog was leashed and sitting calmly as this jerk was screaming. Remember...there was 3 witnesses. But the carrier goes back to the post office and said my dog was running loose and aggressive. I cant believe he felt that comfortable lying about this, when there were witnesses.
4 months later the same carrier RUNS up from behind me and starts yelling again. Again paranoid that I was waiting for him. This time he is yelling CURSE words and Racial slurs at me. This time there are 4 witnesses. Again I go to the post office, I made a report on USPS.GOV several times, made an appointment and spoke to a regional manager, who asked me to write out and sign a statement for him. I did. I really thought this mentally disturbed carrier would be let go or suspended or at least switch his route. I waited 5 days and still see the carrier everyday so I call the post office. They lost the written statement I had given them! Asked me who took it from me.
Anyway this has been going on for a year. He still on my street. He stares at us, yells at me and gives me dirty looks. I now record my walks with my cell phone (which really makes him mad!)
Have had NO HELP at all! Our mail was stopped and we had to get a P.O. Box. He still messes with the mail and returns it to sender. Oh yeah...here's a good one!! I was told if I see the carrier walking down my street...I am supposed to turn and RUN HOME! (even though he doesn't deliver our mail and my dog is leashed and doesn't bark or respond to him!)
We were also told that in order to get home delivery again we must EUTHANIZE all the dogs on our property and have documented proof before they would consider restarting our service (this all came out of the mail carriers mouth)
This is just a small amount of what has happened to us. NO ONE AT THE USPS HAS DONE ANYTHING.
They will want sympathy when he does something terrible at the post office...I am sure.

Oh Dear God, I can relate to this last poster!! My mail carrier has been harrassing me for 7 years since she took over this route. She started by tearing up junk mail into tiny squares and wrote Sad, Pathetic, Pitiful on them. I had had a small stroke 2 weeks before and everything was difficult for me. When I complained she started stuffing my box with rocks, sticks, plastic bags, razor blades, a pair of broken sunglasses. She would stuff the ad circulars in box and leave my mail in the open bin below. When I received a nearly $9000 social security check she put it in the open bin and stuffed my box with about 20 ad circulars (all meant for other apartments). One day I was standing at my mailbox looking through my mail when she appeared as if from nowhere and started running at me screaming You Can't Throw Your Away! I thought she was going to hurt me and having had the stroke less than 2 months before I could not run to get away. I managed to get around the corner of the building but she pinned me up against the side of the building. I sad, "Get away from me!" She said "I know where you live." She tried to kick my 14 year old who is always leashed. When I mailed my grandson in Ca. his Christmas package last year on Dec. 1, it was never delivered. I found it dumped on my doormat Feb.28, looking like it had been run over by a car and stamped NO SUCH ADDRESS. My grandson is 20 and has lived in the same home since he was born. She stuffs my box with other peoples' mail with the name marked out and mine written. She tried to run over me walking my dog in the alley. She swerved at me and because my dog thought we were going to be hit, she jumped at the vehicle and my rotator cuff was badly torn. I suffered in agony for months. Currently she is dumping trash and other peoples' junk mail on my doormat. I have a locked mailbox in front of the building, a long way from my apt. She has done this now over a month. Even came back last night well after dark and knocked some things which were on my lawn chair off and placed the pile there. She put in some overtime yesterday, considering she normally delivers mail at 2:00, not 6:30! She refuses to take my outgoing mail (not her job she says), so in order to mail bills, etc. I have to walk 4 blocks and cross a very busy street to get to a corner mailbox. Having had a stroke I have great difficulty walking. She informed me yesterday I will no longer get mail delivery and if I complain I will be arrested. I have complained for 7 years and they claim there are no supervisors, or they give me a fake name and cell phone number to call. She won't stop until she has killed me and nobody cares!
