Usps - Package sent to Erie PA, stopped at Warrendale PA facility & returned to me empty
Had correct address in Erie, PA on a flat rate priority mail USPS box.
Mailed package, it arrived in Warrendale, PA processing facility.
It sat there 3-4 days.Then it was returned to me completely empty - with a slit and tape on end.
The post office never attempted to deliver the package to Erie, PA even though it had the correct address on it. I filed a claim and received refund for contents, but the postal service does not refund you for the cost of mailing the item. Therefore, I am out the cost of mailing a box that had the contents stolen and was returned to me empty. And it was a Valentines package to my 85 year old mother!
I filed a report also with the Inspector General's Office who I hope will investigate this facility.Attached is a photo of the box with tape on it and covering the slit where box was opened.
