I have been on the other side of this in having my order from Amazon delivered to someone else. I first contacted the Post Office. They checked the package boxes and told me my package was not in any of them. Apparently, whoever received my package just took it and kept it.
I then contacted Amazon and they refused to do anything about it since they did not consider it their problem. Last time I will buy anything from Amazon. Have switched over to eBay. They have a fully refund polity.

Two different time packages from Amazon did not arrive at their specified times. However, they showed, up at my door, a few days later. They had been opened. Guess whoever got them didn't want them.

By coincidence, I returned a package wrongly placed in my locker to a neighbor an hour before I saw this post. It could have been there a couple of days or so - I do not check my mail everyday - sorry about that, whether or not it was you.

Years ago, my son who lived at house #1740 got a UPS delivery for house #1470 on the same street. So he dutifully hand delivered it to the lady who lived there. Fast forward a few years later, and now she's his wife. Serendipitous?

I received a package that belonged to a lady down the street. I took it to her. We fell in love and was married and are living the life... Nope, that didn't happen. She did say thank you tho. :-)

Worst mail service I've ever seen. They actually have signed a registered mail letter sent to me! You never know if your mail or packages will ever get to you. I guess the local mail kiosks are operated by contract people. What a joke!

Give it back and let them know it key was in wrong slot. They make it right.

We get 1-2 packages a week that are not ours along with mail. Since most mail is cards, and packages are from different businesses, we take to the owners.

Mail is a special time for some, and I would hate to think they would have to wait couple days to have postal contractors to put it in the right box

Can't do that anymore since some small person broke in thru the big box opening. Now (I assume all) have a covering blocking anything from the outside from getting on. They put it in place when they leave and it's pretty solid.

I try to return to the right owner, Shame some dont do the same for me. 3 sets of expensive printer cartridges NEVER arrived. No trace at Mail Station, no return by other box owners. Will not order cartridges from Amazon again. All other items safely received, or delivered to the door.

We contacted Amazon and they had one of their trucks that was in the area picket up.

I take it to the proper address. I have had one person come to my door with a package sent to me but delivered to them.
