No i do not have a dog.
I am frankly surprised at some of the sexist "blame the victim" responses here:
I have no idea why I, a woman who lives alone, am being targeted
- you would have to ask royal mail staff.
I suspect for identity theft because everything "missing" is sensitive, eg bank account details, cards, NI number, etc.
I have been to POSTRS, they were useless;
they will only comment on Royal Mail's failure to follow its own complaints process correctly, nothing else.
As stated, I have reported the harassor to the Met.
I was advised to gather more evidence so am filming him when I see him.
This is making him more aggressive.
Met says they will not touch theft of mail and that it is a civil matter however I do believe it is a criminal matter.
I do not receive around 70% of my mail and one bank has written 4 x to say Royal Mail is claiming i no longer live here/that they cannot access the address,
another bank wrote once to say the same.
I cannot reasonably be expected to show they are opening the mail because I don't have access to any CCTV within the sorting office.
But I can certainly prove it on the balance of probabilities, which is the burden of proof required for a civil claim.
For a criminal claim, ie the harassment the burden of proof is "beyond reasonable doubt" hence continuing to collect video evidence.
But as per my original post
- i don't know on what basis I can
- not the Provision of Goods and Services in any case.
I do not have anyone who I can have post redirected to, not locally anyway.
I have been to Royal Mail's security team too and they were not interested.
My sense was that unless any corrupt activity involves loss of revenue for them, they don't care.
I have now written to the chief exec who simply referred me back to the complaints dept - who simply send out generic responses to complaints without providing substantive answers.
It seems royal mail staff are untouchable and can do just as they please without fear of repercussions.
What are you suggesting? I am a 50 year old widow living alone. What else do you think is going on?
