Someone stole a package left infront of my apartment door. What can I do?

I'm really upset. I've lived in this apartment complex in a relatively nice neighborhood for almost twenty years so I've at least seen most of the people who live here. I see postal and delivery people leave stuff at people's doors all the time when they're not home to pick it up and I can't even imagine just taking people's stuff like that.

I think it's totally shady and immoral that these people would steal from their own neighbors like that. The package was an expensive watch that was left at my door when I wasn't home. I'm just so peeved right now.

What can i do?

Well, you can go to the poliece or return it yourself or just forget you ever got anything and keep it for youself. or hide it. and no body will know. it's basically your own conscious choice. Or you can give it as a gift ;]

Everything everyone else said but stef.

Do NOT use UPS! I'm sure UPS is supposed to never leave a package when someone's not home, but I had an expensive giant Star Wars lego Christmas present left on my patio once - and a sticker on my door announcing that a package had been left on the patio. It was a miracle that it was still there when I got home from work! After asking around, I found out that they do this a lot!

In addition, pick up centers in my area close at 6pm weekdays (or earlier!) and are not open weekends. I'm not about to waste my tiny amount of vacation time to pick up a package. UPS is a bad option for working people. I will never use UPS again, nor purchase from any company that uses them.

Packages "disappear" from our complex all of the time from the new tenants who don't know better. I purchased a PO Box from the post office and all of my packages are delivered there. And where I'm from, the post office doesn't deliver packages to apartment complexes, they put a little slip in your mailbox for you to come get it.

So for now, file a claim with the delivery service and the company you bought from. Avoid UPS and consider getting a PO box if your local post office leaves packages around.

If you have a supision of who did it you have something to work with.
If you have no idea forget it.
If any one of your neibours have seen any thing, you have some thing to go on.
If you can reach a suspect, no problem.
When you are sure, their knee caps can be easely removed and you will get your watch back.
But make sure you have the right person!

ok first go to the front office,ask them if they may have got the package.it's common sense to leave a delivery tag on your door,and drop it off either to a neighbor or in your case the front office. Also ask a neighbor about it

if you have a tracking # try to track it to double check your package.Call customer service of the carrier the package was sent,soory to hear that. Fed Ex lost a package of mine and got it back 6 months later

Hello,,was it insured? did you have it delivered by a reputable delivery system? check the company that delivered it and report it now! you should have signed for it !! no reasonable delivery rep. just sets it down and walks away. raise helk.

Report it to the nearest police station. Next hook up camera outside your door. If it happens once it may happen again. Watch your teenage neighbors some of them have drug problems that they parents don't know about.

THERE IS NOT A LOT YOU CAN DO ABOUT THE IMMATURE PERPS WHO DID THIS BUT USUALLY YOU CAN CONTACT THE COMPANY THAT SENT IT TO YOU AND SIGN AN AFFIDAVIT SAYING THAT THE PACKAGE WAS NEVER RECEIVED IN YOUR POSSESION, YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGE BUT THEY SHOULD REPLACE THE LOST ITEM SINCE IT WAS EXPENSIVE AND NOT ON A SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION POSTAGE.

Report it to your local PD....and the postal office if that's who it came through. That's about all you can do. If it's through a service such as UPS, in the future, you can sometimes give them special delivery instructions, so that they won't just leave it.

If it was expensive though, a lot of delivery services need a signature before they can just leave the package.

Well I would arrange with the post office that all my packages be left there if Im not home or at the apartment office. Im not sure what you can do about the stolen package beside call the police and see what they say.

I hope that one of your good neighbors, has it and plans on giving it to you when they see you.

Other than, that let the company know that you did not receive your package. They may send you another one.

I would call the USPS (or whoever delivered the package). Ask them if there is anything that you can do.

contact the company that you ordered from, the police and the delivery service and make claims with all of them. This happened to me and the delivery service reimbursed me for the products.

Go to the carrier who deliverd it and file an insurance claim.

Phone or see your local police. And also contact the delivery service.
