Two items purchased off ebay in last three weeks, Both with tracking numbers, Both said they were delivered to my home. Both item's have never been found!. I think there is a fox in the henhouse .


Purchased item from eBay, around Oct 25, tracking shows item left this post office Oct 30 and has yet to be received anywhere. Both this post office and the eBay seller seem to have trouble at times, according to other reviews.


Yeah, same here. I had a package mailed to my daughter, but did have tracking, so they will send it back to me. They claim there is no such street #.....hah! Amazingly, Amazon has found it several times.


Mailed a package, large manila envelope on Saturday March 23rd. Didn't think a envelope would need a tracking number ( I guess you should get one even if you mail a birthday card),I was wrong, mail has not been delivered to its destination. This is pitiful. I will never ever send mail out of that post office again. My first and last, I will take it all the way to st. Louis next time. What can be done now, Not a damn thing. Thanks for taking my money and not delivering my package USPS.
