Avoid Package Delivery Woes

After a big day of cyber shopping, many of us now look to the mail box or the front door awaiting our gifts.

But what if they don't come?! This happened to Teresa McCaul, a single mother.

"I ordered some of those glow pillow pets online for my grandson and my baby," said McCaul.

The gifts arrived when McCaul was away for the Thanksgiving weekend.

"The neighbor said she saw them Saturday afternoon, and when the mail guy came later Saturday he didn't see them anymore," said McCaul.

The packages were stolen.

It's a tough reality we all need to think about, making sure we are home when they arrive or they are dropped off in a secure place.

"I was kinda devastated, it was hard money that I have worked hard for, to pay for things for my kids and my grandson," said McCaul.

Even though the Post Office and FedEx couldn't do anything, McCaul was lucky when the company she bought the gifts from agreed to replace the stolen ones. So her kids and grandchild will still get presents this Christmas.
