United States Postal Service Lawsuit

Asked over 4 years ago - Palmdale, CA

About 5 days ago a USPS carrier left a packaged envelope on my porch without my knowledge. When i went to receive it i noticed the packaged was open and the items inside were gone. I had my tax information as well as two other members of my family information inside. I contacted the USPS and they informed me if the package did not have insurance there was nothing they can do. I told them my social security and bank information was in there , they didn't care and were laughing at me to make a police statement. They disrespected me and have not returned my phone call after i have called twice to put the complain in. I feel that this is not right and would like some advice to purse a lawsuit towards USPS.

    Suing the federal government, which the USPS is a branch of, is difficult, and you have no damages at this point anyway, other than the rude treatment, which you can report to a USPS supervisor.
