(YONKERS, NY) -- Especially during this time of the year, thieves are on the lookout for packages that have been left at doorsteps by delivery companies or the post office.
Yonkers, New York-based Consumer Reports has offered some tips to avoid having your holiday packages swiped.
First, choose a shipping option that requires a signature before a package can be left, or ask that the package be left with a neighbor or sent to your office.
