    Mail "Undeliverable As Addressed"

    Earlier in the year some of my mail was not being delivered to my apartment for some odd reason. I wasn't buying cards at the time, so it wasn't too much of a headache. I did buy some cheap USB cables off eBay then that somehow got stuck with USPS, and they were returned to sender. I message sender. Seller says he sent to correct address I have on eBay. So I tell them to mail to my parents. So time passes on and I'm getting whatever else mail I'm due. So I start buying cards on eBay. For months I don't have any problem with USPS delivering my mail. But a week ago a card I bought is hung up with USPS. Tracking says "undeliverable as addressed". I have no idea why it would hit a roadblock unless sloppy handwriting was written on label. Is this happening to anyone else? Can I call USPS to move this along? It's getting annoying not getting my mail when I know I didn't do anything wrong, and I doubt the seller did either.

    Not sure. Do I just tape a piece of paper in the mailbox with my name on it if it's not? Tracking shows the envelope stuck somewhere 150 miles north of me, so I don't think my mailbox is the problem.

    I called USPS. They said it was misscanned, and I should get envelope soon. I had this happen before when I bought the USB cables, but it never arrived until I asked the seller to just mail to my parents. Sucks for the seller to eat shipping fees again. At one point, none of my credit card statements or mail from my parents was being delivered either. Is it easy for some machine to misroute the cheap postage white envelopes?

    If you have an apartment number, make sure it's on everything that's coming to you. One of our routes has a condo complex with about 700 units, and if mail is received without a apartment/box number, the carrier has the OK to send it back as Insufficient/Undeliverable As Addressed. Yes, your carrier should know you, but that apt # is required, and as I've had to tell people, I'm a mailman, not a mindreader.

    My eBay default address has my apartment number. I've worked in shipping before. I'm not dumb enough to not list my apartment number on eBay. As long as seller prints label from eBay, my apartment number should be on the label. My complex stupidly had 2 different addresses, and I have had some mail delivered to wrong box. In this instance, my letter was misscanned and still stuck at some USPS location for some reason. Makes me want to stop buying cards or have all my mail sent to my parents 230 miles away.

    I had another card shipped on 9/1. As of now, it's still "in transit" somehow. I have had really bad luck with USPS lately.

    Was the card coming from the Houston area?

    No. One is from the East Coast. Another is from the West Coast.
