Stolen books from Milton resident turn up on eBay


November 12, 2013
MILTON, Ga. A box full of books was reportedly stolen and sold on eBay Oct. 29.

The Milton resident who authored the books said she shipped the box filled with 24 of them to a New York art gallery Oct. 27. Using online tracking of the package, she saw the box made it as far as Memphis, Tenn., before disappearing. The post office said the box had been damaged.

A Google search of the victim's name turned up exactly 24 of the books for sale on eBay.

    Stay away from using the USPS

    for everything except snail mail. Do not EVER use them when shipping packages. I have had one get "lost." They are about as incompetent as those trying to run Obamacare. Use UPS or FedEx if you need to ship something.

    Not to dispute Handyman, since he is speaking from such a depth of experience, but this woman's package--or its contents--was stolen not, as yours, "lost." As for myself I have never had a problem with the USPS and their rates are very reasonable. If Obamacare offers this level of service then I will be very pleased with the result. I should think that my experience is rather more typical of most people's with USPS. Handyman's reactionary, anti-government feelings aside, most Americans are very satisfied with government sponsored services, such as Medicare for example, which consistently out ranks private insurance companies in customer satisfaction. Also, Handyman is mixing his proverbial apples and oranges: UPS and FedEx operate low-volume, high-price (versus USPS) shipping companies; the USPS runs an entirely different type of service. And even given all that, I'm sure that they too have "lost" a package or two in their time.
