What do I do if I get someone else's FedEx package?
Just so, what do I do if I received someone else's FedEx package?
If you are the current resident and got someone else's package you can drop it in a Fedex dropbox if it is small enough. Make sure it is unopened and that you write “MOVED” and add the new address if you know it. You can also take it to a Fedex location and drop it off, letting them know of the issue.
Similarly, is it illegal to open someone else's FedEx package? Is it illegal to open, intentionally, a Federal Express or messenger package addressed to someone else that is delivered to you? No, it is not illegal. No, it is not covered by any laws similar to those that cover the US mail.
Also to know is, can I pick up a FedEx package for someone else?
Can I ask someone else to pickup a package at FedEx office if I won't be around for sometime? It's very tricky. Simply put you generally have to call the shipper and get them to authorize it unless the person picking up has identification with the same address as you. Then a call can be made to FedEx authorizing it.
What happens if you keep a package that is not yours?
The answer is yes and no, according to Citizens Advice. Items that firms send to you, but you didn't actually order are called "unsolicited goods". You're well within your rights to keep them. You have no obligation to send them back to the company or to pay for them.
