I live on legion road in Falmouth and I am fed up with everyone else on the block getting my mail or I get all the mail for the entire block. There is a serious problem here that needs to be addressed immediately!


We do not have a regular postman here on Whitney Road in Falmouth. I am constantly getting neighbor's mail and recently 6 pieces! This is happening constantly and could you please help this neighborhood. Many are very unhappy. Thank you.


We have the same issue on Woods Road in Falmouth. We automatically put any mail delivered to our home back in the mail marked "Delivered to an incorrect address". Others, however, are not as thoughtful or respectful. We have had significant checks that we never received so had to cancel and have them reissued as well as personal financial info which we have no way of knowing if it was read by someone else or what.... FRUSTRATING! Now our mail is being delivered anywhere from 7 - 8 PM and we are on a dark country road with no street lights making it a bit dangerous to get our mail at that hour. Despite a speed limit of 40 MPH, too many cars go flying by doing at least 60 MPH. I think, if the route takes this long, someone up the chain should consider dividing it between 2 individuals.

I live at Allen Ave, Portland, have not received mail for over a week. Side walk is plowed and walk way is shoveled. I have called 5 times and left messages. Have not received a call back as of yet. Would really like to have a supervisor's phone number.


not sure about the creed but can tell you that in Allen Ave neighborhood delivery is inconsistent at best. walkway is shoveled and completely safe yet will go days on end without mail delivery, then end up with a packet of several days worth. the sunday portland press is delivered no fail in blizzards so not entirely sure what the story is with this carrier


I have had trouble before with this post office opening my mail and such. I have had 5 debit cards sent to me recently and not one has come to me. this has been going on for 2 months now. I have no stopped getting my mail for over a week. I have called this office 5 times and left a voice mail every time. No one has called me back. Worst staff


Been a full week without any mail delivery? whats going on?


Post office in Portland Maine has a their opening christmas cards again this year! SCUM!


Good luck getting a hold of anyone.
I have been trying for 2 days now.
Calling and calling, leaving message after message and they can't be bothered to answer the phone or return my calls.


That is what everyone says.
