If incompetent and apathetic are a winning business model, these guys are top flight! Signed YET another PISSED off customer


I had my car key stolen from counter, walked out to car didn't have key walked back in and it was gone. The employee helping me was gone and he was pissued off at me as soon as he started helping me because I hadn't taped my package.
When I asked if they could check camera footage they said no. As ked if I could use their phone so I could call police to file a report they said don't you have a cell phone. I also have a lot of problems with not receiving packages and belive mailman conveniently misplaces them. I never get gift cards that are sent for birthdays and even had my kids new social security card not delivered so have to check their credit score to make sure they didn't have their identity stolen. Sad


I bought a p.o box in the middle of March of 2015 I am being inundated with the previous owner of that box but yes lakeside post office has yet to solve the problem I am paying for a box that is being filled with another person's mail totally unacceptable and they can't seem to get the situation solved


I have been on hold for an hour and 5 minutes with the 800 what's up with that!
