I had the pleasure of putting a package thief in jail back in January. Unfortunately I saw him just a few months later back out on the streets. He is a repeat offender. White guy, buzz cut hair, late 30's- 40 years old. 5'10" about 170-180 lbs. He wears glasses but has faded teardrop tattoos on the corners of both eyes. He is well-spoken and will try to pass himself off as a USPS driver as he did when I first witnessed his shenanigans. He walks around going from stoop to stoop looking for packages, mail etc. I witnessed him stealing a Netflix DVD from one neighbors mailbox.


I just spotted a guy with teardrop tattoos and a camouflage jacket on Erie between 5th and 6th.

So my mom in FL knits me an alpaca scarf from wool I bought at an upstate alpaca farm. After the debacle last year of Fedex disappearing a package of personal stuff she sent because it wasn't sent signature required, she sends it USPS and paid extra for a "signature required" tag. I find it today sitting on the floor by the mailboxes in the building entryway!

WTF!! These guys seem to have the attitude that we should be grateful we get our crap "most" of the time. I expect if I make a stink I'll find all my mail arrives covered in dogshit if it arrives at all.

Oh, yes. I'd been waiting for a certified letter and tracked it online; the USPS web site said that two deliveries had been attempted in the past week on days when both my wife and I were home all day. It also said that the carrier had left a notice with each attempt.

False. Not only had we received no notices; we received no mail whatsoever those days. (Come to think of it, we've gotten mail about 3-4 days out of the past 10. Uncanny.)

So I called the local office to complain/inquire. I was told they'd look into it, but they kept hinting that I'd be welcome to come by and pick the letter up. An hour later, I checked our mailbox and saw that we'd gotten our weekly mail delivery. Included was a delivery slip - they didn't bother bringing the certified letter or ringing the doorbell; they just dropped off a slip.

I worked in postwar Bosnia for many years, and hate to say it, but over time I saw their (government-run) mail system getting better and more professional while ours has devolved to Eastern Bloc standards.

I have complained many times to my letter carrier who I think is brain dead and to the asst post master, Vivian at the main post office who is useless and should be fired.

I've lived here for over 13 years and had almost everything mentioned here happen to me multiple times: Mail not forwarded, handed a worker a form and told the next week by same worker I never handed in a form, entire building received no mail (hundreds of times over the years), mail "lost' (including obvious medication bottle), mail damaged, building getting incorrect mail EVERY SINGLE time a "substitute (i.e. illiterate??) carrier was working, phone rings off the hook at Montgomery for eternity without being answered, packages left at wrong address, carriers not reading notes left, not taking back wrongly delivered mail, rude workers, on and on.

Yeah, this post office rules.

(There ARE some good carriers, it is not always their fault. The substitute carriers , on the other hand, are one step up the evolution chain from newts, no offense to newts).

My mailman has been throwing away the advertisements in the garbage can. I reported it last month, and nothing happened. He is still throwing them out. This week I complained again and this is the response from the national customer service department:

-------

From: "eCustomerCare National" <ECCADUSER@usps.gov>

No mail delivered today on monmouth between 3rd and 4th.

on wednesday, our mail lady had her supervisor with her... we got mail at 1:30pm. She usually doesn't bring it until after 4:30.

There is always at least 1 day per week that the entire block does not get mail delivery.

I have a house in Jersey City but lived in VA for 8 months due to a short-term job there. The mail was supposed to be forwarded from NJ to VA but rarely was. Every time I would check in at the Post Office on Central Avenue, they would act as if they were doing me a "favor" by packaging up whatever was in my P O Box, stuffing it in an envelope & forwarding it ot the address in VA. I spoke to the Postmaster but it didn't help. Every time I hoped the Fed'l Govt would get it right, evidently I was only kidding myself . . .

I have to admit here, UPS doesn't have the greatest track record with me in Jersey City either. Just yesterday, they delivered a package to me that was for an address two doors down. How they confused a 79 with an 81 I have no idea. I have heard other people in Jersey City that had issues with them too.

So far, no problems with FedEx. I stand by what I said about USPS in Jersey City, the Montgomery Avenue office has some serious problems. This isn't a shot against the USPS as a whole, just the Montgomery Avenue office in Jersey City and I'm sure most people on this thread would agree.

The biggest problem with USPS is they operate like neither a business nor like a government service. They are a hybrid that fails in both spheres.

I had a package that came via the SmartPost service and the tracking number said it had arrived at the JC Post Office on November 21 and was "out for delivery". Several days went by - no package came to my place. I went to the JC Post Office to be told, it's sitting on a truck and will be at your place soon. Thanksgiving comes and goes, still no package. Finally I went to the JC Post Office again TODAY, December 1, went to the window for packages, showing them the tracking number. They search around the room and find my package. It has been there over a week. In any case, I'm glad I had trackable shipping.

I'm writing a letter and following the instructions a couple of emails back. This is ridiculous.

I had another package go missing yesterday-- harsimus cove. it was delivered by UPS, I got home 20 minutes after the time stamp online, and no package. There is also a chance this was just misdelivered, but heads up to all just in case.

I've made numerous complaints over the past year with the post office - still having the same issues.


As far as the postmaster general - here is what I found on google

http://www.ehow.com/how_5040363_file- ... t-postmaster-general.html


After posting yesterday I called the post office at 201-915-7041, the postmaster wasn't in but I spoke with a "supervisor" - this was at 11:30am. Apparently, the mail carrier was still at the post office. I could hear her in the background claiming "i delivered mail, 411 just didn't get any" The likely hood that all 4 units here, and all 3 next door, and 3 across the street didn't receive at least one piece of junk mail is crazy.

I'm going to call the postmaster general tomorrow - I suggest anyone else do the same.

Anyone else on monmouth have that same problem?


Have you regiestered a complaint with the post office? If you get no response then file a complaint with the postmaster general. Google it and you'll get detailed instructions. A postman not delivering mail is a serious offense. I'd try to get your neighbors to do the same.

Yes, I'm on Monmouth St. Same issue. And then, the next day, I have a really large amount of mail. I actually confronted the postwoman about it (we were missing some birthday cards) and she got really defensive. Its a loose loose, at least, that's what I have resigned to anyway

I live in Hamilton Park area. UPS said it delivered package to my front door yesterday. I was home and they didn't buzz. It was stolen from the front door within the 30 minutes they said the left it there to the time I checked outside my door.

I usually have all items delivered to my office but this was one that required ground service to residence. I also know of another person who ran in to the same issue within this week.

It's that time of year again!

I'm almost mail free. I seriously check my mailbox once a week and immediately throw out everything in it. Very rarely do I receive a piece of mail that isn't marked "Current resident," or "Our 'friends' at..." All of my bills are automatically paid online now with no paper statements. I signed up for this thing that stops creditors from sending me offers for up to 5 years. And I usually get all of my online shopping shipped UPS or Fedex. If I can bribe my mail carrier into not delivering junk mail to me I'll be fully independent from my mailbox.

I don't think you can attribute these inefficientcies to Jersey City. Most workers in these post offices commute from out of town, are either uneducated or foreign born. The post office has to hire certain people based on political correct ethics other than merit. You stated that your mail did not get sent to it's destination and you have lived here and there and everywhere. Maybe the route of your mail has changed between destinations and other postal workers at other postal depots are upsetting the apple cart of postal productivity.

Twice in the past 6 months a bill that I mailed got "lost". Never in my life have I had a problem with something that I mailed. Now I have had to cancel 2 checks because they never made it to their destination. Something shady going on there, or are they just disorganized?

Just from this morning. 2 different UPS packages left in plain sight on people's stoops. Maybe the home-owners requested this? Still not a good idea.

I'm the original poster, and just wanted to post an quick, disappointing, update.

I'd spoken with Joe at the Package Window at the downtown Post Office, with supervisor Carol at the same office, who then referred me to the Postal Investigation unit at this point. Both personnel at the downtown Post Office told me that since it's not insured, they can't do anything (even though it's registered. As I went through my complaining that someone should have asked for an ID - as is the "regulation" for a registered package, the way both personnel responded made me felt that they suspect it was an inside job - they didn't sound surprised, and did not try to deny that it's a possibility).

Given my package originated from Asia, the Postal Investigation representative told me in order for something to happen, the sender has to initiate an investigation - so I'm being sent back to the merchant seller (who I had spoken once briefly, and had declined to help based on the fact that the usps.com website says the package is delivered!)

Sorry for the nonstop rumblings, but I'm just so frustrated and shocked at such inefficiencies, and obvious efforts to "pass the buck" attitude! It's something so simple, but no one is willing to lift a finger to help - God forbide, they would be breaking the rules for trying to help a customer!

Unbelievable!!!

On Monday, I received an Amazon package with "Wrong Address" scribbled on it. Of course, it was delivered by the U.S. Post Office. They delivered it to the wrong address, and luckily, I got it back.

My husband and I never had problems with our mail when we rented a garden apt. but now that we have a house, things go missing all the time. Not just packages (we have lost checks, small Amazon boxes, you name it) but actual mail, (birthday cards mostly) that it became unreal. We had a hard time believing all of it was stolen from the front of our house (our mailbox is big enough for most of these things to be put into it and it locks) so I was actually put in touch with a Ferderal Agent down at the Post Office who worked on our case and someone was arrested a few months ago. If you'd like PM me and I'll send you her contact info. She was extremely helpful, more so than anyone else down at that Post Office!
