USPS simple sucks – they are the worse entity in this country while managing a MONOPOLY. You get what you pay for. ….. don’t be cheap use Fed Ex or UPS .. your package will get there …..


I guess the cops have to report this incident while they investigate the “victim.” Yes, of course. You had $230,000 of jewelry sent in an ordinary uninsured package. Of course you did.


Was the 2 month delay in making this public because the LIC police have been focused on ticketing elderly cyclists for not fully stopping at stop signs?

bike lanes r scary

Maybe you’ve never been to NYC but most people in bike lanes are people of color, often delivery people.


That’s like $100k more than Trump paid illegally using campaign funds as hush money to the porn star he cheated on his pregnant wife with! maga again no collusion soros


He should have sent it via USPS, it would have still been in transit and therefore not stolen at the final destination.


Respect for postal delivery. The privatization gangs want us to devolve to the thieving gangsterism of modern Russia, where layoffs to get your deliveries suffice.
FedEx, etc, charge far more, post office service was in the Constitution, which receives respect intermittently, for guns, etc. not crucial services, employing millions of our servants, paid justly.
Sick of gangster free marketers.
