What I’m assuming was a process server came to my door today. I did not answer because I did not know who it was. I was watching through the live feed on my security cameras and could see the papers in his hand- also I know just last week a filing was made through Iowa courts from a collection agency. While watching the feed I caught the server open my mailbox and look inside at the mail (this was also recorded.) I’ve done a little research and filed a complaint with the USPS inspector general- but what action can I take beyond this? Do I need to call law enforcement? Is this something that could potentially be used to have the case dismissed?
This would absolutely not serve to get the case dismissed. Your remedy is to call law enforcement and the USPS.

People don't get to have legitimate debts erased because the process server looked in your mailbox. Ultimately, you'll likely have to defend the case on the merits.
