You say you're having trouble collecting on an insured
package. Was it first class insured or registered insured and
what reasons did the post office for delaying your claim? I'm
not connected with the post office in any way but have used
registered insured mail for many years with not one package
lost however, if it should happen I'd like to know what
happened to you.
I just checked with the post office again, brandishing my copy
of the form I filled out in May. It was sent first class
insured, and the postal agent said that since it was for over
$50, the claim had to go through the St. Louis office. He said
he’d make a copy of their paperwork and send it off to them, try
to nudge them along a little. The only other time I’ve had a
claim (in eighteen years), it took a couple of months. Sounds to
me like someone lost the paperwork. I think when he sends the
copy it’ll expedite things.
