Mail trouble in Dunlop?

By johnboy - 17 January 2009 6

The below lobbed into my mailbox tonight:

    Just wondered if you guys had any more info about the AusPost employee who has been dumping mail down the drains in Dunlop.

    Some of the recovered mail was delivered (up to 2 months late, having been waterlogged) yesterday.

    I suspect that level of mail fraud would result in jail time?

Anyone know anything?

What’s Your opinion?

There was a similar case back in 2003. The postie apparently couldn’t cope with extra sorting required for the post bushfire address re-directs. He was just hiding bags of unsorted mail in Weston. Reportedly several bushfire victims couldn’t get important paperwork or their id replaced swiftly. Took a while to get fixed. Do not know what happened to the postie concerned.

It’s not like most residents could read it anyway.

I recall a few years ago a mail sorter being done for opening Christmas cards and removing the money, then stashing the cards in the toilet cisterns at the delivery centre.

No jail time but a long good behaviour bond.

2CC were running this story over the past couple of arvo’s on the Drive show and in the News. Apparantly the guy who dumped the mail in a pond has been fired and is facing criminal charges.

It happened on Christmas Eve but it took a couple of weeks for the posties to collect, dry out and re deliver the mail to people..

It wasn’t all of Dunlop affected and those who were have been sent a letter of apology from Australia Post.

A few late Christmas Cards maybe..

I have no idea whether Macgregor and Dunlop have the same postie, but as far as I know no mail has gone missing for us. I feel sorry for those people who have been affected.
