The holidays are right around the corner and many people are shopping online and having packages delivered to their homes when they are not there to receive them.
Unfortunately, thieves are well aware of that and are definitely taking advantage of the fact.
There are things that shoppers can do to keep their packages safe from thieves.
One option is to have the packages delivered to a relative's or friend's house that you know will be home to accept the package or packages.
You may also be able to have the packages delivered to your workplace.
Or, even though you order the item online, you may be able to pick it up at a local store.
In addition, you can ask the delivery driver to leave your package in a place other than your porch.
