Have you had a delivered package stolen from your front door? I’m willing to bet most people reading this article have. In fact, when I learned that according to a poll, 29 percent of people say they have been victims of a porch pirate, I was surprised that number was so low. What’s even more annoying is that nearly half never get a refund for stolen merchandise. A statistic that is less surprising is that apartment buildings and urban areas see more of these thefts. When it comes to a particular day or time that you should be more aware of porch pirates, the same study found that Monday and Tuesday afternoons are the prime times for stolen deliveries. We’re not sure exactly why those days see more thefts, but it’s worth keeping an eye out if you’re expecting a delivery.
