Customer Question
THE US POSTAL SERVICE LOST...
THE US POSTAL SERVICE LOST MY TAX RETURN WHICH I SENT BY CERTIFIED MAIL. THE POST OFFICE IN KANSAS CITY AND IN MY HOME TOWN HAVE BEEN MOST UNHELPFUL. I KNOW THERE ARE ROGUES IN EVERY BUSINESS. I CANNOT MAKE A CLAIM BECAUSE I DID NOT PURSHASE INSURANCE WHEN I SENT THE LETTER. I AM FEARFUL THAT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION MAYBE IN THE WRONG HANDS. IS THE US POST OFFICE RESPONSIBLE IF MY IDENTITY IS STOLEN?

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.

If I have answered all your questions, please positively rate my answer as that is how I receive credit. If you have more questions, please let me know. If the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
