Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
The postal service will not be liable if someone takes your personal information. The postal service is only liable for the value of the contents not consequential damages and identity theft would be a consequential damage. Further, unless the item is insured you would not have a claim. I do not know how long ago this occurred but unless a long time has elapsed, there is a good chance it will get found because most people will not pick up or sign for a certified letter not addressed to them. For this reason it will probably be returned to you or properly delivered once the error is found.
