Amazon Plants Fake Packages To Trap Thief Drivers
According to Business Insider, Amazon has a sort of "sting operation" in place to snag their drivers who are stealing packages. Here's how it works...
Amazon allegedly plants fake "dummy" packages to test a driver's integrity. The company reportedly sends out empty deliveries that give drivers an error message before being delivered. The driver has the option to report the item, return it, or, if they're dishonest, steal the package, believing it to be untraceable.
If a driver fails to return the package to Amazon, then they are suspected of swiping it. The practice has reportedly been successful in the past at catching drivers who were dishonest.
