>Sorry but this is completely the wrong way around. The courier had a duty to ensure they delivered the parcel to at least the correct address and preferably the correct person. They should have to prove to you they did that. If the signature says J Seaver and no-one called J Seaver lives with you ... it's pretty clear they have failed.<
Whilst agreeing that that is factually correct, the delivery agent is only responsible to the person who paid for their services ... it does seem illogical that they will not help all parties, but no doubt their legal responsibilities and subsequent penalties is tied to the contract between them and the seller?
