RE: [John Muir Trail] Digest Number 1271
- When I ship to someone (with a PO box) via USPS Priority with tracking,
>>.... We attempted to deliver your item at xx:xx AM on July x, 2010 inxxxxxxxx 95389 and a notice was left. You may pick up the item at
the Post Office indicated on the notice, go to www.usps.com/ redelivery,
or call 800- ASK-USPS to arrange for redelivery. If this item is unclaimed
after 15 days then it will be returned to the sender..<<
Is what I get when the package arrives at the post office, and the
postmaster has placed a notice in the PO Box, but the recipient hasn't
picked it up yet.
Which is true- you are the intended recipient, and you haven't picked it up
yet. It's a computer generated message, so one shouldn't assume it is
coming back in 15 days- but a phone call is in order.
I had someone fraudulently open a PayPal/eBay Buyer Credit(?) account in my
name- even though I am a verified PayPal/eBay/PayPal credit card customer,
and never signed up for, or wanted, such an account. When they sent me a
letter confirming that the account was fraudulent, the letter thanked me for
my continued use of the PP/EB Buyer Credit account- !?!? I called, and they
confirmed it's just a form letter- doh. They were going to bring that up
with their copywriters.
FYI- I'm in NE Illinois, and I've shipped stuff to the Lodgepole SEKI post
office via USPS Parcel Post; it takes 7 to 9 days, and always gets there.
USPS Priority(w/tracking) generally takes about 5 to 7 days. I always laugh
when our post office says '2 to 3 days'...
