So how can you protect yourself this holidays season? The USPS suggests you:
- Mail cards and packages early.
- Mail checks from your local post office branch, not a street mailbox.
- Pay for optional USPS insurance and tracking for gifts, in case they are lost.
As for Randy DeMint’s stoppage, due to a robbery, the USPS says “if the carrier deems a residence unsafe.. mail delivery service can be interrupted.”
That applies to crime in the area and aggressive dogs.
DeMint just wishes someone had said something,
“They didn’t communicate,” he said.
But don’t take out your mail frustrations on your mailman: They are dealing with a lot of challenges right now.
That way you get your mail and you don’t waste your money.
