    Royal Mail Recorded Delivery Signed For Naughty Postman............... 14th Nov 12 at 5:41 PM
    Hi all

    I have received my post today and amongst it was something which was sent by recorded delivery and needed to be signed for.

    Both myself and my partner were at work so I decided to use the tracking number to see who signed for it.

    It was supposedly signed for by me although the signature is not mine. Now I assume the post man did this "forging" my signature, I appreciate I now dont have to go to the sorting office to collect the item but surely this is not legal?

    I was tempted (I know I shouldnt) to claim the company that sent it that I havent received it and when they check the tracking prove that it is not my signature with driving licence/passport etc. Although I am not sure I can be bothered with that.

    I was just shocked they had forged my signature.

    It's OK saying about bank transfers and such but when you're not computer literate it's not so easy which is why they would still send cash. And yes it would be changed to euro. Whether it was cash, postal order or just a card, they should be doing more to stop items from being stolen. At least some !!!! would have had a good Christmas.

    You can arrange a bank transfer over the phone.

    Unless you have evidence to support your assertion, please stop accusing people of theft. Millions of items are handled by Royal Mail over the Christmas period, unfortunately some will go missing.

    Personally, when sending money in the mail, I always use cheques.
