    I've lost faith in humanity. I was suppose to recieve my two Astrotrains from the transformers Club and some jagoff walk away with the both of them!!!!!!!!!! The Fedex guy just delivered them to my front door this morning and someone must of been watching him and I guess this lowlife waited till he left and swoop them up!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just so upset about this, I know it's just plastic but the point is that you don't take other people's shit!!! I'm sorry about this but I need to vent. The moral of the story is make sure you have a good hiding place and make sure to have a signature requirement. Thanks for listening.

    I always worry when a package is delivered and no one is home, but then again, my tenant is nice enough to hold them for me.

    Though if it's something that's a pain in the ass to replace, I make sure I'm home.

    Man, I'm sorry to hear of your loss!

    This is why I hate FedEx and will only use them as a very last resort. Where I am is 100 miles from the nearest hub, so they don't even bother to deliver things in a timely manner. And when they DO deliver, they just dump and run. When I was living in an apartment building here, they'd just dump it on a bench in the lobby, even if I was home!

    I hope they give you some satisfaction when you make your claim, tho.

    Man, that's rough to hear. Though its also the reason that I always have stuff delivered to work or a guaranteed third party.

    you can go to court about it if they cost you more than $20. i remember when a guy on amazon scammed me. once he got the $30, he closed up shop and ran off. which meant i didnt get jetfire and jetstorm till they came out in stores.

    UPS will sometimes leave items right at the front door and keep going, so it's not just a FedEx thing.

    And the guy who stole them, needs his nuts in a vice.

    Sucks. My mail normally gets delivered at like 3. One day I took a nap and woke up a 7. My Henkei seekers got delivered, and my neighbor held on to them just in case no one would take them (I live in an apartment)

    Knock on wood, but that hasn't happened to me yet, and I live in a pretty bad neighborhood. However, FedEx would never do that here. In fact, I hate them for the exact opposite reason. They come by, and only leave a notice after the supposed 3rd attempt at delivery. Then, I either have to drive 20+ minutes to the "local" FedEx office to pick it up, or it gets sent back to sender (because they are incompetent, and are useless at understanding instructions over the phone).

    Anyway, sorry to hear that, man.

    I wish that they would make it illegal for shipping companies to leave things at the door without prior consent from the recipient. I would never consent. I have had several items stolen. The city, county and state police have been useless, the postal inspector's office has been useless and of course the delivery companies, Fedex, UPS, DHL, USPS, Etc. have been useless. If I ever catch anyone stealing my package, I will make them personally regret it.

    I like when they leave it. That way, I can get my stuff faster.

    I feel for you. The douche that did this to you will have his negativity come back around one way or another. It always comes back around.

    I always request a mail slip if I can. It's much more secure since they put in in your mail box, but the actual package is at the post office and can only be picked up with the slip and valid I.D.

    I remember as a kid with a paper route I had a wealthy older customer, and one morning when he was out of town I was delivering his paper and there was a package from brooks brothers on his doorstep. I thought to myself, damn, I bet whatever's in there was a lot of money!

    I routinely have bbts piles of loot sitting on my doorstep when I get home from work. there's like $200+ just sitting in them. I'm surprised that there's not some kind of rule about that.
