Yesterday I came home to find my package like this. I could see it a half a block away. (if you can't tell, it is barely on the top step - not even close to door) I couldn't believe it was still there! Obviously the carrier didn't knock on door but put it there from a lower step. Guess I need to get more junk mail so they have to always go to box.
Then on the news last night, there was a story about package theft. UPS says it happens so seldom that they don't keep records. Got a UPS package today and it was behind the wall of the stoop.
