We had this happen. We delivered the package to the address ourselves. Nice way to meet a distant neighbor.

Yea, pictures are fine but they must not look at the house number to make sure it’s the right house. Otherwise go to mailbox & let the post office worry about it, I know it’s not their fault but maybe they have a little more power to them straighten out.

I've had several packages "missing" for weeks! Obviously went somewhere else and the people didn't return it to the P.O. or to the mail carrier. If I get an incorrect package (normally delivered from UPS to the P.O. & there is an obvious carrier error, I drop it off at the proper house. I do ring the doorbell to let them know the package is there.

You should have knocked on my door or rang the bell. We could be new friends

For a few weeks i got other people's pkgs. At first they were nearby, so just dropped them off. Then i didnt get my own pkg but did get someone else's too far away. I called Amazon & they got the situation fixed. Gave me credit for my own pkg, picked up the other, hasnt happened again. But this is my house in NY. Its not the mailboxes that we have down there. You can call Amazon. You can also go to the mailbox place & talk to the person inside. I had to do that. Those people are not inside all the time so its not easy

What product are you missing? I got an Amazon package in my locker, which had MY address on it, but a different person's name.
