Have you heard of Porch Pirates? They are a reality in 2017. Police in Ontario and across the country are warning people of Porch Pirates, who steal parcels from your porch after they have been delivered. There are even reports of these Porch Pirates following delivery trucks and waiting for them to drop off parcels.
With more and more people shopping on-line during the holiday season, there are more and more deliveries and these scammers are taking advantage of it.
Police advise people to use and following your tracking number so you will know almost to the minute when a parcel will be delivered, they also suggest you try and have someone home when a parcel is expected. Another tip is to work with your neighbours in regards to picking up parcels for each other. If you do see someone suspicious lurking around your porch or place of residence notify the police.
