Well., that doesnt really qualify as "Lots" , it simply qualifies as "once in a blue moon" . Amazon ships hundreds of millions of packages.

Lots of packages stolen implies ( implies majority of packages stolen ? ) that a significant number get stolen. Where as this is not the case at all, Far from it, only a insignificant number go missing.

Chances are good you were in fact chatting with a robot. Good chunk of 1st level customer service at Amazon is automated with chatbots.
Do you have any source for this?

Why are you arguing this?
I didn't say "a high percentage of packages are stolen". I said lots are stolen, irrelevant of what percentage of total shipment that is.
The fact that I found that many videos in about 60 seconds of searching is telling. Now consider that most people don't even have video doorbells to catch them and post online.

Are there Amazon fanboys now that have to defend them no matter what, just like the Apple fanbois?

Its been covered in other thread(s) if delivery is an issue(s), maybe it's time for get an off-site mailbox (paid) or use CP flex delivery program.

Obviously it's not for everyone but at least you've got options.

I really wish I didnt have to defend this. I am hating Amazon these days. ( as previosly posted in another post I actually cancelled prime but was forced to get it back because of lack or service to non prime members ) However, this selection of videos in the grand perspective of millions and millions of shipments is less than a drop.
Its plain fact .

Again, I never claimed it was more than a drop (ie, significant percentage of deliveries). I can have a lot of people in my house, but that doesn't mean it's a significant percentage of the human population.

You got to remember not many people actually have security/doorbell system/camera setup. On my block, i think im one of 3 houses that has camera setup (tho possibly more since they could be well hidden). You can also find a lot more videos than that online either via youtube or twitter. Of course its still a very small percentage relative to the number of deliveries but it does seem to be trending up the last year or two.

Amazon delivery is really hit or miss. I am an Amazon Prime member and probably order 3-4 times a month, usually less.

What's interesting though is I get on average, 50-100 Amazon packages a year that don't have my name or address on them, but they get left at my front door. For a while, I started delivering the packages myself as the addresses were nearby, but I got fed up and stopped.

I've contacted Amazon many, many times about this and due to it not being my order they cannot help me. They usually tell me to throw out the package.

I don't even open most these packages anymore, and leave them on a shelf in the garage or I give it away to friends. From the packages I've opened, mostly kids toys and diapers.
