    A couple of weeks ago I had a delivery of fabric go missing from my porch. They replaced it so I'm not out the money or fabric but it still p!$$&s me off! This happened once before but not in a couple of years.

    I have been off work all week and I was hoping that my other deliveries would come but, of course they didn't. One is Monday and another is Wednesday and I can't stay home for them. Everything I have ordered since, I am having delivered to my work.

    I set this up tonight with my webcam. The Logitech software has a motion detection video capture. I tested it out, walked quickly onto the porch and it worked good. I will tape the cord down and cover the laptop with a cardboard box because I also neet to cat-proof it.

    This sign is also being taped to my front door when I leave in the morning! :evil:

    This really makes me mad also! I would LOVE for you to get a pic of the thief (although you may lose another pkg)!

    I'm really sorry this has happened to you but unfortunately it doesn't shock me. It is sad that you cannot have deliveries made without a thief taking it! Hope it never happens to you again!

    how about if place a couple of empty packages out there (you could put newspaper in them for weight), don't put up the warning sign, and keep your video running. Might be interesting just to see who is visiting...

    Of course, now that they are warned, they may break your window & steal your computer.

    I don't believe in warnings. Just do it.

    this reminds me of when my parents owned a little deli market for a few years. I embroidered them a sign that said: "Please don't steal. God will see you, and Charlie Might!"

    (charlie was my dad. lol...) Speaking of Stealing... I stole the saying from a reader's digest.
