    Default Royal Mail lost my Passport

    Sent my passport by Royal Mail first class signed for to DVLA and they say just the envelope just reached without any contents...apparently Royal mail lost the contents..all they can do is ask me to fill a p58 form which gives a 34£ compensation....what do u guys reckon? how abt suing RM?

    Lots of passports go missing in the post. Not a right lot anyone seems to be able to do about it, or are that interested.

    This was recorded delivery?

    I had to send mine only a couple of weeks ago used DHL, cost plenty but speed and reliability were a factor - I've had too many bad experiences with the RM especially where redirection is concerned.

    “One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

    You should have used Special Delivery - costs extra few quid, but RM's liability is much higher - up to £500, though chances of getting more than cost of new passport are probably slim: like everything all that insurance is a con.

    I'd get credit reports every month from now on if i were you.

    I usually do so every 3 months ident theft being partly the reason.

    If it doesn't go missing in the post it can go missing in DVLA. I was advised to take any documents to a local DVLA office for processing.
