What To Do If A Package Is Stolen From Your Porch What To Do If A Package Is Stolen From Your Porch Dec 18, 2020

There’s always a little bit of excitement involved when ordering an item online. Aside from the convenience of ordering online, there’s a certain pleasure in knowing that only a few short days later, you’ll be receiving your package right on your own doorstep. It doesn’t matter if it’s a package of dog food or a new garden tool or a tricycle for your child for Christmas — getting packages delivered is just a pleasurable experience.

So it goes without saying that when a package goes missing, the resulting emotions you feel are the complete opposite. At first, it is likely confusion. You received a notification that the package was delivered, and the address information is correct, so where is it?
