I recently ordered something from Amazon via 2-day shipping but my package was incorrectly delivered. The tracking information online stated that it had been delivered, but upon further inquiry with a Bostonia El Cajon post office supervisor - Amber, the package had actually been delivered to the wrong address. This is not the first time this mistake has happened and various other letters and packages have been delivered to my address and were actually other people's mail. In previous mistaken deliveries, I had returned incorrectly delivered mail back to the post office and have had my incorrectly mailed packages returned back to me as well. However, this time it looks as if mail theft had occurred with my incorrectly delivered package - which was fairly expensive. They simply did not return the package - which seems to be out of the opportunity that the USPS gave them. This is all due to the carriers' lack of attention to detail in recognizing the correct mailing address and their supervisors' lack of training instructions to do so. Please address these issues with the carriers and supervisors, as I will no longer trust the USPS with more important mail.


The Postal Service SURE ain't as Reliable as they used to be,  I put a package out in my mail box this morning only to find out the Carrier put it in my next door neighbors mailbox right after they took it out of mine. I don't care if it was a substitute mail carrier!  Their SUPPOSE to do their job RIGHT!!!
