Holiday season brings out the bad guys. If it happens to you, report the theft immediately to store officials. However, according to C+R Research, as many as 1 in 4 shoppers didn’t get a refund from the store last year after a front door package theft. It cost each an additional $109 to replace the stolen goods.
There are ways to avoid porch pirates. First, of course, is to buy your holiday items in retail stores and take home the purchases with you. Also, there are electronic ways to protect packages after they arrive, including cameras and alarm systems covering the front door area.
Hoping you don’t suffer a yo ho ho piracy, and good luck with your home deliveries this season.
