Porch Pirates don't discriminate, and because of recent Amazon Prime Days, more packages will be delivered, soon.

More people are shopping and making purchases than ever online, due to Covid-19.  It's estimated that over a third of Americans have had a package stolen outside their home at least once.

Porch Pirates have the best opportunity to snag your gifts between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, as Christmas falls between.

There are some ways to ensure the safety of your packages.

Have your package delivered to your work.

Have your package delivered to the home of a relative or friend that you know will be home.

Have your package held at your local post office for pickup.

Take advantage of “Ship to Store” option that many stores offer. Amazon offers a “locker” feature that allows you to pick up your package from a secure location.

Request that your package has signature confirmation upon delivery.

Ask your carrier to place the package in an area out of plain view.

Watch How one man got revenge on some unsuspecting porch pirates. (The package fires shotgun blanks. FUNNY STUFF)
