USPS packages that transit the islands experience a high rate of theft. Buying Insurance and/or Delivery Confirmation will reduce the chances of theft. There seems to more accountability that way, so the handlers don't mess with those as much. Without Insurance and/or Delivery Confirmation, the package still gets there, but possibly with the contents switched from other packages.
Are you kidding me. A classmate and also a neighbor were just talking yesterday about the USPS here by the beach. We both lived near school and the USPS was exactly like back home but now living beachside they are so corrupt. We have mail and pkg missing all the time. While traveling I have shipped packages from Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Indonesia, India, Senegal and a bunch of other countries. Never once has a box gone missing or has it been rifled with. Only once a box from India was cut open by customs and they were so retarded that they cut through some of the stuff in the box. But everything arrived. It is angering that you can get stuff sent from developing countries yet the USPS can't get you your stuff without something going wrong.
So when you get things shipped from companies does that stuff go missing as well?
