    Seems some people will just steal if given a chance.

    I am surprised that people are surprised at this story.

    I would not expect a parcel left on my doorstep to be safe. Couriers / postmen do not normally leave parcels if they don;t fit in the mailbox - they leave a card. Perhaps it is the small town versus city mentality.

    Also how many people have a camera set up like that? How would you know if the missing parcel was stolen or that it was never delivered / lost in the post?

    Most times with UPS or FedEX they don't even bother knocking. I've been home when they walk onto the steps and just drop a package and leave - no knock or anything.

    That's been ny experience, too. Nothing stolen yet, including a huge box left outside with my husband's new PC. I was home all day and found it only on leaving the house. But I never sign releases allowing any carrier to just leave stuff, so I figure it's their risk, not mine.

    With the second iPad 4 that I ordered, UPS left two slips for missed deliveries. I didn't sign anything, and they just left it on the doorstep on the third attempt.

    If a signature is required on delivery and they just leave the package, does UPS have to replace it if it goes missing and isn't found?

    That's what I'd expect. Otherwise, what's the point of them having you sign?

    Also, if they charge extra for signature on delivery and don't get one, that would be a breach of contract. I would think that the sender would be owed a refund of the cost paid for requiring a signature on delivery.

    Yes, I would expect the carrier to eat the cost if stolen.
