Ugh, People Are Desperate, We Need to Watch Out for Porch Pirates
The holidays are quickly approaching and that means it’s about to be the most wonderful time of the year. It’s so much fun getting together with friends and family, but it’s also that time of year where we need to be looking out for our neighbors. As more and more gifts are being dropped off at homes this year, porch pirates are going to be looking for those packages.
What boggles my mind is that many of these porch pirates are well aware that lots of people now have those video doorbells, but that doesn’t stop them from attempting to take a package that doesn’t belong to them. Which just goes to show you how desperate people are, which is sad, but no one should be resorting to crime.
What Can You Do To Avoid Being a Target for Porch Pirates
Obviously, keep checking any tracking information for orders that you place. That way you don’t have boxes sitting outside your door for everyone to see. Also, just keep an eye out for your neighbors. If you see a vehicle that looks out of place in your neighborhood, keep an eye on it. There is a chance it could be nothing at all but nothing wrong with being cautious.
Don’t Have Your Packages Shipped to Your House
Last year I had a coworker that was telling me that she likes to have packages sent to our work and not her home. That way nothing was stolen, and kids weren’t trying to figure out what was inside. I thought it was a clever idea, you might want to give it a shot.
