  1. Fed Ex drivers are the most likely one’s that stole the items! I bought a expensive diamond tester back in March of this year…
    and had the tracking from the seller to my business address that took 48 hrs. for point
    A to B delivery. I was contacted by the FedEx
    App. when it was to be delivered from the local center on the ETA , at 10a.m. the FedEx
    App. contacted me that deliver was made at the delivery address and “Signed For” ! Too
    cut the chase, the FedEx driver falsified the name on his electronic signature pad and was just going to keep it ! I went to the local FedEx center were it was dispatched from an the general manager told me that he delivered it to the wrong address! The driver return too the center with my package, that was opened up , and told the police that the person he delivered it to had opened the package! But the police never found the person that had supposed to have signed for and opened it up! Since I got the tester in new condition ( box was never opened ) I decided not to file charges, it is my understanding that FedEx contracts out too
    Independent delivery drivers on local delivery! So the weak link in the chain of custody is at the local levels , where criminals intercept and steal !

  2. Do not use Fed Ex Ground, that is an entire contract company. ( blue and green logo company ) The owner of the truck pays kids to drive the trucks and does not pay them alot. Ever see how they dress, that should say something.

    Always request to ship the red and blue logo company.

    • Thanks much for the info on the conflicting colors with the trucks I guess I never realized that before but I will pay a closer attention because they go by my house at least 25-35 times a day and it is crazy cuz I thought they changed their logo because I did see a blue and green logo multiple different times so I do know they deliver to my area where I live so now you have given me some clues to further my hunt for my two missing items ✌️

  3. Fed ex changed its logos last year. From now on on new equipment they are all red and blue. They have either express or ground to separate them. Ground is all contract and express has partial contractors. They both along with ups have Temps this time of year.

  4. If you have that kind of expensive coins or anything that is expensive. Go back to the old way and send it with a courier service that is bonded.

  5. I’ve had coins stolen also . Those thieves should be imprisoned for at least 20 years . They abuse their good salary job and still turn out to be rats .

  6. Well kids in 2020 I had an order of ASE, a set of 35 coins that I never received. Plus 1900-P Liberty Head MS- 64 and a 1900-P MS- 65 that I ordered in February,2020 and March, 2020. It’s obvious that employees of these delivery services are either collectors, or they know what to look by companies. Also I have had coins that where going to get graded, or have been graded. It’s a freaking shame these JAGOFFS are doing this to men& women, and children interested in coin collecting from a grandparent or other family members.

  7. WHAT THEY SAY IS SO TRUE. I HAVE COINS SENT OUT TO BE GRADED OFTEN. AFTER THEY ARE GRADED AND DELIVERED. THE DELIVERY PERSON JUST DROPS THE PACKAGE OFF IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE RIGHT OUT IN THE OPEN. DOES NOT BOTHER TO RING OR KNOCK ON MY DOOR. WHAT THEY DO IS HAVE THEIR FRIENDS FOLLOW THEM AND WAIT UNTIL THEY LEAVE THE PACKAGE. ONCE THE COAST IS CLEAR. THEY GRAB THE PACKAGE. THEY WERE NEVER ABLE TO STEAL MY PACKAGE BECAUSE I CONSTANTLY TRACK MY DELIVERIES. AND ONCE I CAUGHT THESE GUYS TRYING TO GRAB MY PACKAGE. BUT I SCARED THEM AWAY WITH A BASEBALL BAT. YOU TOUCH MY PROPERTY, I WILL BREAK YOUR HANDS THE FIRST TIME. I WON’T SAY WHAT I WILL DO IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN. SO PAY ATTENTION TO THESE COMMENTS. THEY ARE THE TRUTH ABOUT WHATS GOING ON OUT THERE.

    • I had one silver dollar never received fed ex a next on dropped in neighbor yard and returned to me the drop off lay it on front step I am getting online fed ex gotta be a sign for at delivery. They not once have knocked

  8. True fedex ground is contracted drivers i know ive been with them for over 20 years and can honestly say most employeesare honest and care about the customer but like most jobs a few bad apples spoil but the company takes this very seriously and prosecution to the max please insure and track

  9. Greetings to you all I’ve had coins stolen to mainly paper money and gold coins double eagles have made their way away from my house to someone else’s pockets damn shame.
