    I had FedEx deliver a package to the wrong apartment building once. Our complex had an A and a B side, we were 1022-A, they delivered to 1022-B. Fortunately the person over there was very nice & we had no problems retreiving our motorcycle gear...

    Not in this case, since it was addressed incorrectly! They did their job! We all need to take personal responsibility and not blame others for our mistakes. Off my soap-box now...

    This is what I thought, too.

    Good luck.

    I really hope it gets where it needs to go. I think you have some great suggestions here. Don't put too much faith in the post office to work miracles, though. One of our packages went missing once. The postal worker claimed that he had delivered it to us properly, even though he had a long history of delivering things to the wrong address. He even claimed he had a signed manifest (since the package was insured and had delivery confirmation), though he never produced it. The package was never recovered, and the post office was completely unwilling to help. I really hope this works out for you guys, and it's recovered quickly.

    Sorry, I understood it was mis-delivered.
    My bad.

    I get wrong mail for people all over my neighborhood and from several blocks away and who never lived here at all.

    This seems really simple to me.

    You need to let PO know and see what they say.
    The lady you were sending the quilt to needs to put on her 'big girl panties' go knock on their door and ask about it. She needs to take a pic of it with her. Explain the address error. If they refuse to give it back, tell them she knows they received it and that the postman delivered it to them and she is notifying the PO and filing a police report with the Police Dept. for theft of stolen goods. Also, let them know it is a federal offense to keep mail not belonging to them and she will file that too.
    If they choose to give it back, all is forgotten.
    If not, follow through.

    Another good reason to have Delivery Confirmation with a signature (whatever it is called).

    Sara should ask her neighbor about the package. In the meantime, will pray they do the right thing.

    I was expecting a pkg a while back which didn't come as expected. Called UPS to track and it was delivered to my neighbor (who was not home at the time it was delivered) so UPS man put the pkg in a car parked in their driveway! They didn't use the car. But UPS told us and we went and found my pkg in the old car. God cares about what we care about. I will also pray that the quilt is found.

    How horrible. Could she walk across the street and ask them if they received it. Did it have to be signed for? If tracking says it was delivered, it was delivered. If she tells them this, Well, maybe they will feel the guilt and say, oh, I am sorry, I opened it without looking at who it was addressed to, threw away the wrapping and no idea of who to give it to....... Maybe, my little prayer is going up now.

    Why don't you ask Sarah to go over to the house with a male friend (incase) and ask for it. Be nice and say that the number was written wrong and could she please have it back? After all I said my prayer was answered for her.

    You didn't say what city, but you can google that address and it will often give you the name of the person who lives there(sometimes the telephone number). You could then call them.

    You might have Sara's mom knock on the door. I've lived here 7 and a half years and only know the names of two of my neighbors and I've only met them a couple of times each. Maybe the neighbors don't know Sara's mom.
