A Bit of a Warning with Australia Post (and I guess other Delivery Services)

 

Last week I received my Orcam Wherable device which was fantastic.  Only problem was, when it was delivered by Australia Post, it was left on top of my Mail Box in the Garden, not at my front door.

So jus a warning, keep your eyes and ears open for any delivery’s
