My previous employer sent 2-package of my personal belongs to my last known address with personal information including checks from my bank and possibly my social security information. The packages where sent via UPS and no signature was required so the packages where left at the front door. What are my rights in this matter, should they be responsible for my personal items/information being sent to the last known address. The packages where sent almost a month ago, no one at this address claimes to have seen any packages received nor left at the door. What can i do?? how would they ever be able to secure my identity if the packages are lost and no where to be found. They would be able to put a claim through UPS but if the packages are never found what will i be able to do??
Make a list of all the personal belongings. After listing all items, assign second hand value to all the items
Consider closing the account and taking other affirmative steps to protect yourself against identity theft.
It may be premature to consider litigation until there is proof of actual damages. Was any request made to the previous employer to return the items? Would the employer be able to claim that the items were unclaimed or abandoned?
It would be good to consult a lawyer to review these facts and determine whether you might file a lawsuit.
