Now, the actions of this UPS driver have gone viral!
Cameras can be found everywhere these days. Smartphones are in the hands of almost everyone and homes and businesses make use of security cameras.

During that last few months, the Holiday Season brought with it the delivery of millions of packages, and a number of thieves to steal those packages. Stealing off of someone’s porch is simply a terrible idea. Consider what happened to this thief:
Ouch – that was brutal.
Sometimes, hidden cameras capture things that make us smile. Consider the experience of this family and their UPS driver:

How many packages are actually being stolen out there? More than you think. Huffpo reports:
Some 23 million people said they have had packages stolen from their homes before they could open them, according to a new survey from, a division of Bankrate Inc.
But the problem goes beyond theft to the mere inconvenience of waiting for a package to be redelivered. Of the more 6 billion packages shipped yearly, up to 40 percent miss their first delivery window, said Neel Murthy, co-founder of Swapbox, a locker-type system for alternative package delivery.
