This evening a neighbor brought a rifled through box to my house and everything was taken. It was mailed through USPS. He said a UPS box was taken from his house as well and the items were stolen. This all happened around 8th Avenue and 59-62nd St. Totally crappy. Anyone else experiencing this? Or know an effective way to report/prevent it?

A fair warning this holiday season to be careful with home delivery.

    This will never happen if the receiver practice presence of mind…I mean, the mere fact that he expects home delivery, he should have phoned in the store and keep tract with the whereabouts.
