I need to know, who do I talk to about not receiving my packages. My regular Mail Carrier is great but, if he is out I dont get my mail. I am expecting a package that said it was left at door or on porch Saturday Jan. 6,2020 but thats not the case. I looked all around the house & nothing is there, I tried to call Benning Rd which is my main post office & the phone just rings & I havent seen my regular carrier to ask who took his place because I have dogs so I know it didnt get delivered because the Mail Carrier would be laying there with the package.My regular Carrier knows where to leave a package if Im not home, Im just trying to find where they left it or if they took it back to the Office.


The person who acts on the behalf of the regular post person for the block of 2900 Nash Place SE 20019 is always on her cell phone instead of doing her job. I was supposed to have a package delivered to me from DSW, but my email said delivered at 10:46 am July 22 but not too me. I am also sick and tired of getting other people’s mail in my box. Please do something about this money is hard too come by. I bet if y’all u all took half of their check every time this happen they would improve.


My mail is placed in the hallway outside of my mailbox for some odd reason, and I live in an apartment. The other day I came home and my check was in the hallway!!! I am so upset and I tried calling several times and no one answered, the phone just kept ringing. Who do I talk to about this situation because I have already had several packages stolen.


My mail is placed on a chair on the porch so the wind can blow it away. I have mail slot in the door.


It would be nice if some one would answer the phone. I am missing two packages and neither this location nor the river terrace will answer the phone. Unnacceptable customer service.


What's happening with our mail? Haven't seen the mail in my neighborhood since the 2/12/14. Spoke with some other folks in the same area, and got the same response. No mail.
