How to prevent package theft


THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOUR PACKAGES. JASON: THE ULTIMATE CRIME OF OPPORTUNITY — A HOLIDAY PACKAGE IN FRONT OF AN EMPTY HOUSE. MORE THAN 25 MILLION AMERICANS WERE VICTIMS LAST YEAR. NOW THE I-TEAM HAS EXPERT ADVICE ON PROTECTING YOUR DELIVERIES BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT ALWAYS GET STOLEN ITEMS REPLACED FOR FREE. PORCH PIRATES ON THE PROWL — EVERYONE FROM CHILDREN TO DELIVERY WORKERS SWIPING PACKAGES. IN JUST ONE HOUR, WE SAW NINE DIFFERENT HOMES WITH UNATTENDED BOXES ON PORCHES, ONE EVEN SITTING ON THIS CHAIR ON DISPLAY.>>OF FIGURED A SWEATER WOULD BE FINE, BUT A BOX IS A BOX. JASON: HE LEARNED HIS LESSON AND PICKED UP HIS REPLACEMENT SWEATER AT THIS NEW AMAZON SECURE PICKUP LOCATION.>>JUST A DUMB HOLIDAY SWEATER. JASON: BUT YOU STILL HAD TO GO THROUGH THE HASSLE OF REPLACING IT.>>EXACTLY, CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE, HAD ANOTHER ONE SENT HERE. JASON: AN AMAZON DOES IT FOR FREE. BUT THE I-TEAM FOUND POLICIES VARY BY VIRGIN. DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU BUY AND FROM WHERE, STOLEN ITEMS ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY COVERED. ONCE AN ITEM IS DELIVERED TO YOUR DOORSTEP, A SHIPPER IS NO LONGER RESPONSIBLE, SO IT IS UP TO YOU TO PREVENT THEFT OR POSSIBLY PAY TO REPLACE STOLEN GOODS.>>CUSTOMERS CAN GO ONLINE AND INSTRUCT THE CARRIER WHERE TO LEAVE THE PACKAGE. MAYBE THEY WANTED ON THE SIDE OF THE HOUSE OR SOMEWHERE THAT IS A LITTLE MORE HIDDEN. JASON: THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE IN CHICAGO SAYS YOU CAN ALSO REQUIRE A SIGNATURE AT DELIVERY. IF YOU ARE NOT AT HOME, YOUR PACKAGE WILL BE BROUGHT BACK TO YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE WHERE YOU CAN PICK IT UP, OR YOU CAN RESCHEDULE THE DELIVERY. CARRIERS ARE ALSO ON GUARD.>>WE PUT OUT A LOT OF INFORMATION FOR EMPLOYEES TO STAY VIGILANT ON THEIR ROUTE. IF THEY SEE SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE OR PEOPLE THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE FOLLOWING THEM. JASON: THE POST OFFICE, FEDEX, AND UPS ALL OFFER THOSE OPTIONS AND THERE ARE SMARTPHONE DELIVERY ALERTS. PLUS, THERE ARE HOUSINGS OF SAFE AND CUP LOCATIONS SUCH AS YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE, A RETAIL STORE OR POSTAL STORE.>>WHEN CONSUMERS ARE OUT SHOPPING THROUGH THEIR NORMAL ROUTINE, THEY CAN GRAB PACKAGES WHILE THEY ARE OUT. GEEZ IN: FEDEX ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO SCHEDULE DELIVERY AT YOUR TIME OR EVEN REDIRECT A PACKAGE WHICH IS ON THE WAY AND THERE IS THIS PACKAGE GUARD DEVICE WHICH CONNECTS TO WI-FI. THE SHIPPER PLACES THE PACKAGE ON A DISK END OF SOMEONE TAKES THE GOODS, THE MANUFACTURER SAYS THE DEVICE WILL SOUND AN ALARM — AND IF SOMEONE TAKES THE GOODS, THE MANUFACTURER SAYS THE DEVICE WILL SOUND AN ALARM.>>IF YOU GET THE TEXT AND YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT IT, YOU RUN HOME IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE HERE TO RECEIVE IT. HERE YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT. JASON: YOUR EMPLOYER MAY ALSO ALLOW YOU TO HAVE ITEMS LIVERED TO WORK. IF NOT, CONSIDER DELIVERY TO A RELATIVE’S HOME IF THEY ARE AROUND DURING THE DAY.
