SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Residents in the River Park area of South Bend have been missing mail for about two weeks. While most of the things that land in your mailbox tend to be junk, some are finding that important bills are slipping through the cracks.
“I have a gas bill I still haven’t received,” Jackie Hagedorn, a River Park resident said. “I always pay my bills on time so yeah, I’m upset.”
While plenty of bills can be paid online now, paper billings serve as a reminder to pay those bills. So now, residents are missing due dates that they never missed before.
“I had actually missed a bill and I had never been late on a bill,” Shea Wallace, River Park resident said. “They called me and I was totally caught off guard. I thought maybe it got lost in the mail.”
Some residents believe the mail mishap may be due to the fact that they don’t have a regular mail carrier.
