Mail carriers accuse USPS of faking Amazon delivery records so customers don’t get free stuff

ATLANTA (CBS46) -Getting an Amazon package after it’s due may come with a silver lining.

CBS46 is uncovering how post offices in every corner of metro Atlanta are running behind schedule on deliveries, and if you’re expecting to get something important in the mail, it’s frustrating.

She told CBS46 her former supervisors at the post office gave her specific instructions to misrepresent delivery times because, she says, they know what’s at stake if Amazon packages are late.
