newegg, Fedex, and 115 dollars

so I ordered a new cpu from newegg.

I had it overnighted, $115 dollars.

Fedex delivered it on the 9th apparently, and there was no signature required so they just dropped it on my doorstep.

Big surprise, it was stolen. I live in the ghetto in a 3 apartment old colonial house.

I called FedEx, they said that they dont deal with the receiver and that I need to get the shipper to file a claim with them.
I emailed newegg and told em to file a claim, I feel like im going to get screwed here.

I didnt read the fine print, I had assumed that a small package worth 115 dollars would need a signature. But regardless, in newegg's shipping policy it says that FedEx drivers sometimes will just leave the package on the doorstep if they deem the neighborhood to be safe. Well, this neighborhood aint exactly safe, (its in worcester, ma).

Just wanted to whine

cliffnotes:
1) newegg shipped cpu
2) fedex dropped cpu on doorstep
3) someone took package
4) im looking for my money

i doubt you'll get screwed in this. if you do, it's because you let it happen. there's no way you should let this go.

that sucks. if your neighborhood clearly isn't a "safe" one, then fedex needs to pay for that ****.

Fedex ****ing sucks

Smart people leave a note for the fedex guy to put it in the hallway/mail slot or leave at a neighbors house.

fed ex is only allowed to do that if you actually sign something saying they can leave it.

***** AND MOAN constantly to fedex untill they give ya the money back via newegg or a check.

Seriously sounds like fedex's problem. Around here they tag a notice on your door that says they came but no one was home.

You have to sign permission for them to leave it, dunno what happens after two consecutive misses with no slip. I assume it goes somewhere and waits for you to go pick it up.

They just left mine on my doorstep, but the door to my house is concealed behind a bunch of bushes and ish, and I live in a really quiet neighborhood full of old people and little kids.

I wonder if anyone has ever followed Fedex or UPS trucks around picking up loot.

invar: i thought that this package would require a signature.

ive never ordered stuff from the net before that didnt require one, i think its pretty ridiculous that they didnt.

I was home at the time too, I didnt hear a doorbell either.

I dunno, i think that since the guy left it here its fedex's fault.. theres no bushes or anything, this isnt the suburbs where no one would ever come by.

In fact the stoop is elevated, so anyone walking on the street can plainly see if theres a package

at my new place, i've had stuff left @ my door like 30 times, and theres been no problem. I find it annoying to keep on missing the driver, and having to go somewhere & picking it up. I live in a kinda ghetto neighborhood, but its not too bad.
