Fed-Ex packages stolen off of my porch. What can I do?
Besides move to a better neighborhood.

I ordered some stuff from Lowes' Black Friday Online Sale last Thursday. I checked the tracking numbers today and FedEx claims to have left them on my porch Monday at 3:18 pm. I had checked the porch Monday around 5:00 pm and there were no packages.

What is my recourse? Am I screwed?

Did you buy it with a credit card? Some credit cards will reimburse you for stolen goods.

I always wondered about this situation. Back when I did computer work, UPS would drop off whole computer systems at my apartment door without any signature. My thoughts were who is responsible if their is no signature. Whose to say it was ever delivered. Luckily I never had any issue of anything going missing

call fed ex and make sure they did nto mis calssify the drop, it may be waiting at their facility.

other than that, call lowes. they should re send the package. you do not choose the company they use to ship your goods so you have no control. they will probably just re ship the package.

Have actually had this happen to me before as well. I'd imagine fedex still has it TBH

Wow. What is going on with Fed Ex? I think this is the second post about something like this happening in a week.

assuming it was stolen off their porch (which is not likely the case), how is that fedex's fault?

File a claim with Lowes (the shipper... Lowes hired FedEx. FedEx will pay Lowes eventually.)

Lowes will pay you (eventually).

Order a replacement while you wait to get your money back.

It's absolutely FedEx's fault. They chose to leave your goods by your door... it's their risk. They know that. Risk of doing business the way they do it.

I'd call FedEx first and verify the package was actually delivered, and the 3 pm visit wasn't a delivery attempt.

Before I got my fence, fedex always dropped at back door.

I doubt it's their fault. They are a delivery company. Check the tracking and be home when they deliver, or tell them to go to back door. I have an enormous empty planter by the front door they put my stuff in now.

I read something online that if it's expensive items, and the seller chose not to purchase Signature Confirmation on the delivery, then it's their fault and not FedEx's.

Could be wrong though, or it could have been a cheap order that didn't need it.

Almost anything expensive I've ordered had to have a signature, such as my new laptop a few months ago, FedEx left a note on my door where I could pick it up or schedule a new delivery time online, or meet the driver on his route.

1. Call Fedex and make sure they dont have it

2. Call Lowes and tell them you never received it. Tell them Fedex is wrong and that you were home and there was no delivery no matter what they say.

I got sent an email from my neighborhood president-he says people are following fedex and stealing stuff off porches after fedex leaves. Everyone needs to be careful!!!

Tel fed ex not to leave shite on your front porch. They will put it around back if you make the request.

Don't trust that Fed Ex sent it to your house. They sent my passport to a guys deer camp and left it on his door. The adress was correct but THEY changed it.

I just had Deja Vu..

Seems a thread not to long ago almost said the exact same thing. Title and first sentence almost the exact same.

Fedex yourself a bunch of boxes of dog shite. Send them in nice big boxes of different sizes preferably in electronics boxes to all arrive on the same day.
