Resident in Naylor Gardens not receiving they mail becoming a issue nor they not coming into office.


The carrier tried to drop off a package on a Saturday (April 3) when the building is closed. When I check the tracking, 9405516901521383357449, it says that it's at the post office waiting to be "picked up". When I try to contact the office the phone is busy. When I finally get through, the recording comes on that the "person I'm trying to call cannot be reached". I just need my package to be delivered.


I have been waiting on a package since January 12th I went to this office on Alabama Ave only to be told they do not have my package. I called the company to locate my package the company told me it was at my local po(not) It’s at the holding station in temple hills. To call that location and repeatedly hung up on. Everything associated with this location needs to be revised the CS stinks, and they blame it on the people in the area LMAO. Very Unhappy Customer.


Order # 9405510205369098692308 has not been process since Nov 5 WHY & where is my order it’s been too long & this happens every year & it’s sad

Every time I call phone number it says: your call can not be completed at this time please try again later. Why?
