Default Update on lost quilt

I posted to the thread, but in case you didn't see it, I thought I'd post it here as well since many asked me to update everyone if my lost quilt was found.

I received a letter from a Los Angeles post office that said "we found your label that had come lose from your package and it is enclosed". In the envelope was indeed my return label, the paper with the tracking number, etc. AND my original piece of box on which I had written the name and address of my niece and then, to make sure rain or snow didn't smear it, I taped two pieces of clear packing tape over it.

My question for the USPS is how does a name and address written on the box come lose. A label, sure that could happen but less likely if taped down. This was written with pen on the box and is neatly cut out along with my return label and the tracking label.

They ask me to describe the contents, etc. but it's obvious that someone must have opened the box and taken it. I am just heartbroken.

I am so sorry this happened to you. I know it probably doesn't make you feel better, but who ever did this will reap what they sowed. ((Hugs))

It doesn't surprise me but I am very sad to hear this.

So sorry to hear this. That is just despicable. I think I'd be calling the postmaster of that particular post office and ask how it's possible to get a piece of a box vs a label, and no box contents!

I totally agree. If you have a photo of the quilt. I would post it. Some one has seen it walk out of the building. That is total bs that they can not do anything else. Contact the post master. See if they have a security video. They are suppose to because of it being a government office. It makes me angry and it isn't even mine to deal with. I would go to television station and bring it to their attention. At least email them. They need to remember Karma is a real *****.

Well, phooey, this was not what I hoped to read. I can't even imagine how you must feel. It is more than obvious that someone just stole your quilt. I am just shaking my head. I sure wish this had not happened to you.

To have so many felonies happen in it's own system and tolerated is beyond me. I would press further into it.

I really like tessagain's idea of going to your local TV station. Just make sure you also have photos. But I'd still be calling that postmaster myself as well.

now it IS possible that the box was ripped open by machinery or mishandling and the contents fell out, don't give up yet.

My daughter sent her best friend a hand-made baby quilt - the paperwork showed that it was left on the porch - big mistake. Later, somebody found the package, opened, and rained/snowed upon, in the woods, close to her friend's house.
