  1. In the first case, it’s possible the person’s credit card or financial information were stolen. Quite common to order high value goods and initially have shipped to billing address. Then no red flags to the sender when billing and shipping address don’t match. Once item is shipped, thief calls the carrier to try and redirect the shipment to a different address. Maybe Mr. Juan tried and failed to do that.

  2. Well this all started when they leave the package on the stoop. Years ago we had a sign for everything. The best as you receive registered mail and you never sign for it, the postman signs for it and leave it in your mailbox that’s very interesting.

  3. This system is not working.

  4. at least the criminal was required to wear a mask….
