    Well here's the story on Oct. 2nd i purchased a lot of three transformers off ebay, and the tracking number says it was delivered on Oct. 5th at 4:46pm. The problem i check my mail at 5pm and nothing was there! Did my package get stolen? I live in a decent neighborhood nothing like this has happened to my mail or packages before. It sucks it happened this week the week where my regular mailman was sick the whole week, and this week we got at least three different mailman.

    Check again Monday, could be an error in the post office tracking system. Their not always reliable.
    I've had it delivered days before it's tracked as being on the way. So, could be error. I would call your local post office.

    yes this. But I would also ask you neighbors if maybe it was delivered to the wrong address and or make sure you gave whoever you bought it from your right address as i have done that before and had a package delivered to the wrong address lol

    A friend of mine had a UPS guy deliver his package at a completely wrong address, even though it had the right address on it. The street name and number were completely different.

    Probably a snafu that can be corrected. Could be a computer problem. Monday's no good to you though, it's Columbus Day and they're closed.

    They might not be opened Saturdays either. Didn't I hear correctly that they are canceling Saturday delivery?

    Anyway, we've often received other peoples mail by mistake because our street numbers are so close and off by one number. If the post-person isn't paying attention, we can easily get somebody else's mail. So, we put it back in the mail box with the flag up and next day it's taken care of.

    Let us know what happens.

    Notify the seller as well. Only the sender can start a trace on the package.

    I had a similiar thing happen years ago with a Arcade game being delivered to the wrong address by FEDEX.

    I think maybe it happened the other day as I met the mail man for a package and I did not receive it. Later on in the evening I noticed a large package jammed in my mailbox.

    Perhaps it went to the wrong address and someone put it in there.

    I hope your package is found.

    the package could have been delivered to another house. If your familiar with drop of times of your mail you can get an idea if the package was delivered before or after your neighborhood. Just to get an idea where about it might be.
    I would go to the post office right when it opens tomorrow, the sooner the better if not, also knock on every door in your area.

    But I had something similar happen to me in August. I knew the package was coming but after my mail was dropped off around 3pm nothing came. Around 5pm I checked tracking again, and the package was delivered around 4pm. But no package in my mail box (those metal boxes). I knew the package was dropped off at a neighborhood ahead of me cause my mail drop offs averaged around around 3pm.
    Next day when the post office open, told a clerk the issue and that same day I got my package back. The issues was, our area had a different mail carrier the day before and accidentally dropped it off at another mail box. And I was right, mailman did drop my package off a neighborhood ahead of mine.

    Hope you get your package, kinda sucks waiting for a answer.

    Just wait. Once I had a dvd coming and I kept asking the seller where is it. 5 Months later, I ask again and he said he will ship another one, but the next day it arrives.

    USPS is so on point these days :rolleyes: . I had thought my package was lost because it was mailed to me priority mail and was supposed to arrive 09/23. 10/5 come around and USPS website finally says it processed through another state. Just got my package in yesterday.

    Well i called at 7am to my post office this morning gave them all the tracking info. and explained the whole story. I gave the lady all my information and she said she will call me back to tell me who was the mail carrier that day to confirm she delivered it.
    She told me she would call back after 8am and she did not. Looks like i'm going to have head to my post office again on tuesday.
