Canada Post found that guy’s lost inheritance cheque. It was behind a drawer.
I don’t want to accuse anyone of anything because lord knows we’ve all had situations where we’ve lost something and only found it after we check the same place for like the 15th time, but it’s hard not to find it just a little odd that the thing had been missing for months and then miraculously turned up right after the news came to visit.
Louis Kavaratzis was in shock when he got a phone call from Canada Post Monday telling him that a piece of registered mail — which contained a certified cheque for $301,560 — turned up weeks after it had gone missing.
“I felt a big sense of relief, yet I’m still frustrated, very much. Last night I didn’t sleep one bit,” Kavaratzis said Tuesday. “[But] I won’t rest until the cash is actually in the bank.”
After CBC News reported on his story last week, Kavaratzis says the local post office in Ayer’s Cliff rang him up at 6:30 p.m. on Monday saying they had searched the office again and had found the missing envelope behind a drawer reserved for registered mail.
“When they removed the drawer, they found my registered mail … [that] supposedly had fallen on the back of the drawer,” Louis said.
He says he rushed to the post office as soon as he received the call to retrieve the envelope.
“I was in shock, I didn’t know what to say. I looked at it, I opened it in front of them to make sure it was the cheque.”
And get a load of this quality customer service.
His brother, George, says while he is happy to learn that the cheque had been located, he wondered why it wasn’t spotted in the initial searches of the facilities.
“Unbelievable, what a relief,” he told CBC News Tuesday. “I am extremely happy for my brother, that he’s getting his money.
“It seems a little fishy to me to be honest. Why didn’t they look there before?”
Before finding out the cheque had been found, he said Canada Post sent him a cheque refunding him $12.22.
“I guess that was their way of apologizing.”
I don’t even know what to say.
