U. S. Post Office / Tampering with residential mail non delivery of mail

1 66 N. GroveElgin, IL, United States Review updated:

After not receiving mail at my residence located at 1146 Iroquois Dr. Elgin Ill. for several weeks. On February 20 2009 I contacted the Grove Street post office and spoke to a supervisor regarding no mail deliveries at my address. After a brief search the supervisor returned and stated that the mail carrier had listed my house as "vacant" and returned all of my mail after holding it at the post office for one month. At no time did anyone from the post office contact me or leave a notice that my mail had been held at the post office or the reason for the hold other than the carrier decided that my home was vacant. After not receiving my monthly utility bills I became alarmed and sought the assistance of the post office to explain why I was not receiving my mail. I contacted all of my utility providers and a Federal court in an effort to learn if the mail sent to me at my address 1146 Iroquios Dr. Elgin had been returned and was informed that there were no returned mail to their agencies.
Contrary to the mail carriers explanination to his supervisor this is a frightening event and requires a full investigation. The mail carrier took it upon him/herself to tamper with my mail without my permission or instructions from a postal supervisor or the post master responsible for this field office. It is imperative that this matter is handled quickly so as to prevent any further caustic mistakes of this nature in the future.
Thank you,
Sincerely, Bennie Sowers

    I Jacqueline carter 4051 Ford Road #429, Philadelphia PA 19131 We are senior citizens who must wait for the mailman to come between 10am and 11am.. I have been trying to pickup my package since May 15th today is may 18th. The Post office has the only key to the mail room. Sometimes medications are delivered. We need to get these packages when the mail person comes even when late. A logup box is located in the lobby. we can come down to receive parcels.
    Thank you for your concern.

    I DON'T GET MY MAIL TILL AFTER 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. there is no reason for the mail to be this late.

    if the mail man can not get the mail to my house at a reasonable time there should be something done about it.

    the post office raise the price of postage every year but the service gets worse. i can remember when the post men
    delivered the mail twice a day and the postage was cheap. now you charge alot and you get lousy service.

    I agree with you. The Post Office needs to be Privities. Most of the Government Employees just don't care. They get paid well if they do a good job or bad. I can't get my mail. I talked to the postmaster at 16015 CAIRNWAY DR HOUSTON, TX 77084-9998 First of all he it look like he was drunk and trying to sober up. He took my number down and said he call me. I knew he wasn't going to call this was two weeks ago.

    Advice Open an account at one of the UPS or Post Box Store and get your own personal Mail box that’s one way to get your mail.

    Take the Post Office out of the hands of the Government. Government Employees have no incentives to do well. Most of there job position is who you know. Knowledgeable person need not apply. Give the job to family member friend or sex partner.

    Good Luck my friends we are all dome
