First, call the police because the package has your name not your neighbor's. Second, call the mail company to complain about the mailman and follow up on the complaint.

Yeah. You could get him in time-out for five minutes and no recess. Sorry #3... trouble sounds too funny/childish of a word for me.

So what if the neighbor signed for the package? OP still had to pay for it! You should be able to have him give you the package... and the mail person may get in some sort of trouble

61 I meant "getting in trouble" reminds me of when kids got time-out and kids would say "I'ma get you in trouble!" I know they can be arrested for doing an illegal thing and not actually get sent to a few minutes time-out. 110 Well, the funny thing is, I meant it as funny, just people didn't see it as funny. It was not serious at all. Maybe if I worded it different it might have had a humorous effect... or it was a lame joke. Either way I failed at comment.

#64 Neighbor thinks s/he signed for the package. S/he signed a piece of paper that clearly states that they are only in temporary control of the product until the owner comes to collect it, you don't sign for the package you sign for the legal right to hold onto the package until the owner comes to retrieve it. Now the owner using their half of the paper, can take this matter to the authorities who will obtain a warrant to search the crazy neighbors house or demand that the neighbor pays for the price of the item.

Op should steal it, if the neighbour phones the cops, the cops will ask what was stolen, and they find out he stole the phone in the first place so they probably wouldn't bother.

My guess is that the OP left a note for the mailman to leave it with his neighbor because OP may have been at work or otherwise busy. OP should have probably picked a better neighbor though.

That's standard practice. Don't complain about the mailman; just ask them to not leave your stuff with that neighbor again.

For where I live, standard practice is for them to leave a note on the door saying they will try again later, or to leave the note, signed, saying to leave it at the door.

68, you're thinking parcel delivery services, which are, actually, entirely different from mail services. Also, 35, I came to the same conclusion as you, as I highly doubt that the letter carrier would just leave a note after making a mistake, rather than retrieving the item from the psychotic neighbour.

No, mailmen can leave your package with your neighbor. I had DHL leave my new laptop with my neighbor. He tried opening it an claiming it was his, he went federal prison for a bit.

68, And clearly you don't all live in the same place. It is standard practice in some places to have another person sign for it and notify the recipient that this has taken place. It happens all the time.

It all really depends on where you live, here in Canada there has to be a working arrangement between the two neighbours, and Canada Post has to be informed of said arrangement.

Well where I'm from, they leave a note at the front door or on the letter box incoming you that you have a parcel to pick up from the post office. Or ring them and they can deliver it another time.

In England they normally post a sheet through the letter box with tick boxes which explain why they couldn't deliver your package. Either it's too big to fit through the letter box, or it's huge and you weren't here to receive it. I think they can leave your stuff with your neighbour but they have to have your say so. Otherwise I think they take it back to the post office and try again the next day.

Well guys I live in the Netherlands, and here they leave the parcel at the neighbour's house if you aren't at home. If both neighbours aren't home, they take the package back to the post office and leave you a note saying which post office you can pick it up at.

Here in the netherlands, it really depends on who delivers the package and where you ordered it from. While TNT (the main post company here) may deliver stuff to your neighbours, some companies have a "no one home? Try again two more times and if you're not home then, you have to pick it up at the post office"-policy. Unless OP ordered from one of those companies, the mailman was not at fault. That neighbour sounds like a major douche though, I'd definitely threaten to call the cops on him (and actually do so if he still refuses).

I am a mail carrier. Unless you left a written ok for your mailman to deliver any packages to your neighbor's house, he/she should not have done so. Call the cops if your neighbor won't give it back, and call the post office to complain. Follow up in both, it's unacceptable.

I love how a very large portion of the Americans on here, don't seem to get that they aren't the only country in the world, and other countries do have different laws for some absurd reason!!

Personally, if I thought my username sucked, I wouldn't have chosen it... And I bet most people would say the same. So I have to say I quite like my username. I also quite like GirlOnFire (I'm assuming it's from The Hunger Games, but if not, that's still what it reminds me of :P) so I really don't think you can say ALL our usernames suck. It's really a matter of personal opinion.
