Has anyone had a Netflix stolen from you?

Asked by shpadoinkle_sue (7188points) October 12th, 2010

Firstly, I have a game plan it place of what to do. Getting a new one isn’t the problem. I’ll call Netlix and they’ll fix it. I am peeved that it was the first disc in a series, but whatever.

Here’s what happened; I got home from a long day at school and was looking forward to watching it. My sister hands me the mail and there’s two that are still sealed and one of those throw-away sheets that come with it with the sticker seal. I’m confused. That’s all that was in the mail. When I open the mailers, I don’t peel the sticker off of one side and put it back, like this one was.
I’m really irritated right now and I’d appreciate some jellies giving me some comforting words. I’ve found stories online about postal workers stealing movies from Netflix. But, has anyone had any personal stories about this happening? It’d make me calmer.

Nope, I don’t watch movies too often.

I wish I had a story that would make you feel better, but no. No one has even stolen my netflix movie. Sorry that it happened, though, I would be pretty unhappy too.

Just report it online and they will send you another one.

One time I put two Netflix into the outgoing slot at work, and they never made it back into inventory. After waiting about 10 days to get the usual message acknowledging receipt, I reported them stolen. The Netflix folks took care of it (they are great about that! one reason I love the company) and there was never any problem about them.

Later I heard of other ones being stolen at work, and I sent a warning to the whole building not to put your Netflix into the outgoing. After that I always mailed them at a mailbox.

But that was company employees, not postal people. I have never heard of postal workers stealing them.

Just report the missing one as lost or stolen and they’ll take care of it for you.

I’m sure if you made a lot of lost-DVD reports, there’d be a question, but if it’s rare or this is the first time, they won’t question it.

Thanks. It’s not Netflix I’m upset with, they are great at stuff like this. I was still irking when I asked this question. I’m very good at problem solving, it just doesn’t add up in some places.
