Was it really necessary to film from behind a set of mailboxes to drive the point home? Reporters do some of the corniest things.

Why did is the video of the "porch pirates" have their faces blurred?

Here in the UK, we have to sign for our package , we also have established time tracking so we know the days and roughly what time the package will arrive. We also can request it b delivered at work or a safe address. No package is left on the door steps or front of home.

Shirley Owens I don't know why they didn't have that in the USA, as well? ??

Enid Clarky exactly it works that way in Spain too. And if you're not home you have to personally collect it from the local post office. No package is left unsafe.

LMAO ups sits my packages on the door step they don't even put it all the way on the porch. Or they sit it high up on the bench on the porch. The mailman puts packages inside my screen door.

Both Remington and Winchester have excellent products that discourage porch pirates.

My UPS driver puts my large packages behind a wall I made out of chunks of concrete or if it is thin, under the welcome mat at the back door and he always rings the doorbell. FedEx just sets them on the front steps for all to see and never rings the bell. USPS always pulls in my driveway and rings the bell and waits for me as he knows I am always home (retired). I have had boxes gone thru but not taken just because they didn't want my cat food or TP. I now have 6 outdoor cameras and get alerts both when packages are delivered and when movement is detected by the cameras. If you want god cameras cheap, look at Zmodo wireless, they have an app. I got mine at Amazon.

If you're not home on those days, alert the driver not to deliver on those particular days. Also if you Amazon Prime, their app will let you know exactly the day the package will arrive.

Don't have that problem here. If you're not in they'll send it to the depot and you can collect it or order a redelivery. These people need to get their lazy asses to work and stop stealing!

Porch pirate season coming up...
Boe Dillard (4 months ago)
Should be open season year round.  Its for their own good as the thinning of the heard helps mother nature correct itself.

Luckily I don't have to worry about this because there are like no people that come in my neighborhood. And the people who do are usually just turning around.
