Not a credit card, but a number of years ago I had a cheque book stolen en route to me - luckily my bank spotted its fraudulent use and I lost nothing, but (although the bank could spot that it was stolen once it had reached (or was on its way to) Sylvester Road DO) - the Post Office did nothing to help, nor show any interest. There were temporary staff there then and a spate of thefts. Because, for some purposes, the law treats items posted 'as if' they had also been delivered (proof of postage being sufficient to argue proof of delivery in some circumstances) Royal Mail seems amazingly reluctant to help where items of value have gone missing. Mind you, that is part and parcel (sorry) with their sister organisation's (PO Counters) disgraceful treatment of sub postmasters, where for years they have been prosecuting individuals for fraud when their own internal electronic accounts system with sub-postmasters must use is known to be faulty.
