The address I put on the envelope was

USCIS

P.O. Box 805887

Chicago, IL 60680-4120

Why then, did I get this notification (receipt number changed for post)?

Is the USPS so f'd up that they can fail to deliver something to their own facility?

???

Probably because of the way you sent it, it needs to be signed for.

You will get a message like this for any return receipt requested type mail sent to PO boxes because obviously you cannot expect someone to stand at the mailbox 24/7. They will have a notice in the mailbox (one from you and probably hundreds more) and when the USCIS employee decides to go get the mail, the USPS will give all the mail to him or her after signing one of the notices.

You see, just by delivering the mail to the box, they would not have had any way to tell that someone actually got it.

What you said is probably exactly what happened,

but wouldn't you think that the USPS, being both

the delivering agent and the receiving agent would

know at what time there would be someone there

to sign for it?

It's like Moemad.gif, Larrytongue_ss.gif & Curlyheadbonk.gif are hired by their lawyers

"Dewey, Cheatem and Howe" to deliver a box to themselves.

Nyuk nyuk.

Then again, maybe the lockbox has nothing to do with the USPS.whistling.gif

The "lock box" has nothing to do with the USPS but is an operation contracted for by the USCIS.... You asked for a signature, the USPS in Chicago received the package and told the USCIS to physically come into the post office and sign for it... It is just that simple... If you had not required a signature it would have been delivered because they simply would have put it in the PO box (not to be confused with the "lock box")

Thanks, that explains it.good.gif

I did see that as a possibility, but I thought the lockbox was a USPS postal facility.

I guess "PO Box" doesn't always mean a USPS post office box.laughing.gif

Nobody lives at the lockbox; it is very small actually and people don't come in those sizes. It is your own error for not uderstanding these facts and requiring the signature that has your documents in limbo. They will work it out or will send it back and you will be smarter next time. You seem to misunderstand what the last S in USPS really stands for! (Hint: It ain't Service!)

A PO Box typically does mean a USPS facility (services such as Mail Boxes, etc.. excluded)... Since you asked for special services to be performed BEFORE it is delivered into the PO box(ie.. signature) the best thing they could do was drop a "note" in the PO Box saying... "Hey! I got more for you but the "dude" who sent this says you gotta sign for it. So please come as soon as you can!!!"

"call 800-ASK-USPS to arrange for redelivery"

I called them but what the hell, they said the administrator of the lockbox will normally go to the post office to pick it up,

so I just have to wait for that to happen.

They said there is no redelivery at such boxes so the note in the box should be acted on by the guys in charge of the box.

These ground rules are not fully explained when you go to register the package, but that's par for the course I guess.

I never did drugs in my life actually but I enjoy the bloke's tunes.

Just a footnote to the Lockbox saga:

My wife got 3 text messages (one for each application - AOS, EAD and AP),

but she got 9 email confirmations - 6 of them were duplicates!

Example email:

Dear Applicant/Petitioner:

Your USCIS application/petition has been received and routed to the National Benefits Center for processing.

Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number

MSC(number specific to ONE of the applications). With the official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) you may visit www.uscis.gov

where you can check the status of your application using My Case Status. We suggest you wait until you have received your

Form I-797 before checking My Case Status.

This confirmation provides notification of the date USCIS received your application/petition.

This notice does NOT grant any immigration status or benefit. You MAY NOT present this notice

as evidence that you have been granted any immigration status or benefit. Further, this notice

does NOT constitute evidence that your application remains pending with USCIS.

The current status of your application/petition must be verified with USCIS.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE

Onward & upward to the NBC in Missouri!
