    how does UPS catch people stealing packages?

    i've sipped items in boxes using UPS and the person that received the box said that it was empty. i never did anything because im rich.

    what happens when a UPS employee steals? what are the consequences?

    The employee is fired for stealing. Unless there is proof of an employee stealing thousands of dollars worth of stuff, the company won't contact the police. Your package that came empty could have opened durring transit and the item(s) could have fallen out.

    no, i'm mad that you are pretending to be rich. if you were rich, you'd be with 10 chicks right now, not on browncafe. and you wouldn't give me 5 cents, you'd tell me to get a haircut on my own dorrah.:tongue_sm

    Well, UPS offers a $5000.00 reward for anyone who has proof of an employee stealing and it leads to an arrest.

    On a more local note, we had a problem a few months ago around here with the contents of certain packages going missing. While this was going on our center manager made sure that we all knew the empty boxes will be fingerprinted and they will catch the person or persons responsible and he, she or they will be spending time in jail. I never did hear if they caught the perpetrator or if that threat was enough to make it stop.

    Hope that answers the original question.

    I was told by our security it is too much work to get fingerprints. The police are the ones who do it and they usually put the fingerprints on the to-do list. Plus, it doesn't prove the person did it, even if the fingerprints are inside.
    I had information that my preloader was stealing. With that information loss-prevention caught my preloader red handed. That was 1 1/2 years ago, and I still haven't received any money. Since then LP personell have changed over a few times and no one knows anything. I would do it again though.

    If you were really that rich, you wouldn't have been concerned enough with this loss to inquire.

    If you were really that rich, you would have had a underling inquire on your behalf.

    Or have I misunderstood and you are actually rich as in Richard?

    Oh boy...here we go again.

    Pulling fingerprints from a cardboard carton is a task in itself without that carton having been handled by how many hands during how many steps of the package process?

    If anything, micro camera technology has probably been the greatest deterient to the dishonest. But then if they were smart they wouldn't be dishonest.

    Our building gets the Loss Prevention guy in camo and he hides in the woods with a video camera. We joke constantly about " LP guy in the woods". We have to park next to and against the building here-there is not enough room.

    We were also told that four cameras were installed (small building) but no one has found them yet.

    Cameras where you would never think they could put them, and the ever exploding paint when you open the box you are about to steal from. Thieves suck!!!! Handcuffs aren't good enough for them.

    That statement is actually "UP TO 5000 dollars.", and thats definetly a key word there.
