Pure stupidity on my part
Well the deliveries will probably be insured and those drivers would most certainly be fired, so is losing your job worth a few thousand dollars?
Like said above.
There's insurance and they can trace what driver had what packages.
They dont just dissapear like that and its noone fault.
They don't just let anybody work for UPS or FedEx. Especially the drivers - it takes years to get to that point within the company. They're not going to risk their job security over it, plus their tracking system is so tight they would know exactly which truck the phone was "lost" from.
This is nothing more than fear mongering. Don't do that.
the delivery companies are responsible for delivering the product the consumer ordered. its all insured. once its signed over to the consumer then the delivery company is no longer responsible. the drivers would be arrested and sued before making any profit.
**Cue the conspiracy theorists.
these guys deliver high value items all day long. I'm sure theft happens occasionally, but most of them realize it's not worth loosing their jobs and possible jail time.
Once again, stupidity on this guys part. Mods, please delete this thread. I would if I could.
Let's do some math.
Let's say said person steals 12 iPhone 4s and sells them for a grand each. We have:
12x$1000 = $12,000. To be more specific, a one time lump sum of $12,000.
The average FedEx driver makes $32,000 a year. Plus benefits.
So to answer your question, I'm sure anyone in here would rather have a consistent pay check, then a one time lump of okay money that causes you to lose your job.
Again, this is speculation. How many reports have you ever heard of someone not getting their iPhone (or a guitar or a watch or a package from Amazon or whatever!) because the delivery guy stole it?
I'm sure there's more rules and regulations in place for these drivers than you and I could ever imagine. Things get lost, sure, but 9.99 times out of 10, they're just on the wrong truck, not in the backseat of some delivery dudes car.
There's no need to make people freak out any more than they already are, okay?
FedEx ripped off my 4th-gen 20GB iPod back in the day. I sent it in for a battery replacement, and they received the box at the Apple warehouse, with no iPod in it.
Luckily the 5th-gen iPods had just come out (color and video playback) and Apple sent me a brand new 30GB one paid for by FedEx with an apology letter. Was a pretty sweet deal
My neighbor had prescription medication stolen by UPS twice. There aren't more rules and regulations than you can imagine unless you have a very narrow imagination. Ever walk into your local delivery warehouse? Mine was full of inner-city thugs.
Sorry that you live in the hood.
The point is that while it is possible and it does happen from time to time, it's not probable. Otherwise, nobody would use FedEx/UPS.
Sounds like a scam.
On your part.
(I'm sure it wasn't, though!)
this is true. I have a friend of a friend who is a FEDEX delivery person probably watching someones non delivered LCD TV as we speak.
You don't what?
Actually, it is a valid concern. I work for a courier service (independent contractor) and I'm sad to say that over the 10+ years I have been doing it I have seen many drivers do stupid things for whatever reasons they have. Not all drivers are bad.
Having said that, I'm taking some donuts to my local FedEx tomorrow morning and re-establish some connections so, hopefully, they will see the HFPU on my package and I can pick it up at the station. Why? New neighbors that I don't trust.
How's that for paranoid?
Put the marijuana cigarette down!
Actually, I don't live in the hood. My FedEx and UPS hubs are in the hood. Nice try, though.
I never implied anything else.
Right, but wouldn't you say these are the exceptions?
