I sent someone $40 in the mail through a regular long envelope with a stamp on it. This person used to always receive the mail that I sent them on time without a problem. If I sent it to them on a Saturday, they got it on that Wednesday. If I send it to them on a Tuesday, then they got it on that Friday. One time I sent it to them on Monday morning and they still got it on Wednesday.

I sent this person the $40 on a Wednesday, and that person never received the $40 that I sent to them. It has now been 13 days, and this person still never received it. I have been calling USPS for a week now trying to figure out what happened. USPS submitted an inquiry last week. Then, a person in the local post office in that city/state took my name and information as well as the person who I had sent it to name and information & told me that they will find out what happened to it and will get back to me.

She never called me back all of that week. I called back yesterday on Monday trying to figure out what happened to it. They took my information and said that someone will get back to me in 3 business days. Today on Tuesday, 02/12/2019 someone from USPS called me back. They told me that without a tracking # that it will be impossible to locate it. She told me that it has to pass through so many cities and could be in Memphis, TN because their mail there has been slow.

I asked her could she call around & find out if an envelope with my name on it is still in Memphis, TN. She told me that she could not do that because post offices & USPS get thousands of mail. I told her that I am sure that all of their mail including envelopes has to pass through something electronical that scans it for national security reasons, so they should be able to digitally locate that information.

She said that they could not do that without a tracking #, which I believe & know is a big, fat lie. USPS has ripped me off many times. They try to force people to pay for insurance. I am living in poverty as it & cannot afford to buy and keep buying insurance for USPS. I bet even if a person had insurance with them they would still find reasons why they cannot find & replace people’s mail. It is funny how I received & every other place received mail that I had sent that week except the $40 that I had sent to that person.

3I believe that someone works at USPS opened the envelope & stole the money. They probably know what happened to it based on how she was sounding. I hope USPS goes out a business. If there was an alternative way for me to give and receive every mail or most mail without going through USPS, then I would do it. Their workers have nasty attitudes & “I do not care” attitudes.

update to all of this

AUTHOR: Kandy - (United States)

POSTED: Monday, February 18, 2019

The envelope with my all of my $ in it came back to me on Saturday, 02/16/2019. It said that it is returned back to me due to wrong address or something like that. I know that I sent it to the correct address because I sent another envelope with cash money in it the week after that and the person who I had sent it to received it.

It must was a minor mistake by USPS. I wish the person who I had sent it to had received it. However, I am happy that I had at least got my full amount of $ back in the same envelope that I had sent; though. I hope USPS continues to stay open for years and years to come.
