Been said many times on this forum, the actual mail service is not the issue, its the local postman, the last link in the chain that is usually the issue for missing mail. Proved to be the case yet again. 

As it was at my location, a new man on the job & all of a sudden my mail seemed to go astray.One day a maid that services the apartments came to my door & handed me some letters, saying she found them in the bins outside !!!!

my Christmas cards did not arrive

maybe some hope

Mine didn’t arrive either for two consecutive years. Someone probably looking for cash stashed inside since I receive all other mail I expect just not Christmas cards.

A not so funny  coincidence ! Just  today have had to go  looking  for a tracked mail  containing  a Passport that  Area Post Office  had checked off as  delivered . Yep, sitting in front room  of village  house along  with <deleted> loads of other peoples stuff.

I am afraid to say that the mail service most definitely is the issue. I have written so many emails to Thailand Post regarding their poor delivery record to my Tambon in Bang Saphan Noi. (This is where the local postman in the article was based by the way). I have had letters taking a month to arrive from Bangkok. 3 months for a parcel from UK that was suddenly found in the back of the sorting office there!! Christmas cards that either arrive 2 weeks late or not at all!! 90 days reporting by mail taking 8 days from Hua Hin, The list goes on and on.

So I have emailed postal care at Thailand Post and nothing has ever been done until now. And I have heard that other people have done the same where legal documents have never arrived or arrived too late. And this has taken a high up person in another Moo to complain and alert the media to what has been going on. They have had enough chances to put their house in order but failed every time. 

Will be waiting to see if we do get any improvement but I will not be holding my breath.

He probably ended up as toast.

Well, most of it looks unopened. Must be too lazy to even check for anything of value.

tampering with mail is an offence. He should be locked up.

Our local PO delivery guy was doing the same. The wife and i gigured it out and set him up. He still works there though but calls us immediately if something arrives. We yelled the f out of him in front of everyone at the po. Actually its happened in rawai, prachin buri and also kanchanaburi that weve had this issue. They all do it and the especially like the ebay items from the uk or aus with no tracking info.

That's worrying, especially as I get documents sent from the UK paid extra for the proof of receipt/signature required service, enabling me to track them on the Thai Post Office tracking website.

 

Having said that, I constantly follow my item, when it appears "Out For Delivery" (the phrase on the tracking page), I make sure I'm at home and waiting for it. If it suddenly appeared as Delivery Status "Successful" (along with an image of the signature) but it hadn't arrived, I'd be on the phone right away to chase it.

But that's just me - very untrusting.

Interesting, most of the mail appears still bound in bundles with elastic bands with no attempt to open them for possible cash or bank cards - the usual reason.

been there done that. I found out the postman's address by myself and went there, he was very helpful, he let me in and let me search for my missing letters myself, all stacked on the floor.

I reported him to the main post office and we now have a woman doing the job and she does it well.

Sad to hear all of these stories as we have excellent service up here. A recent letter from Immigration was to our old address but the local post office knew we had moved and put the correct address on it before delivery.
