I sold an amplifier on E bay in June of 2002. It arrived to the buyer and he advised it was severely damaged. he thought he had been ripped off.
I told him to send it back and I refunded his money. When I got it back it looked as though it had been thrown off a building. I contacted him and he advised their was a huge hole in the box that was taped over when he recieved it.
I filed an insurance complaint and provided the post office with all info. After SEVEN MONTHS of beurocratic red tape they REFUSED TO PAY THE INSURANCE CLAIM!!!
I am in the process of putting together a lawsuit at this time.
To make matters worse, I sent an expensive amplifier to South Korea on March 4th 2003.
I paid 180.00 dollars so it would get there in 5 to 10 days. As of the writing of this complaint on April 14th it still has not arrived and it appears it never will.
I had to refund the amp price plus shipping cost to the buyer.
The Post Office advises that they can't track the item even with a receipt so i am just out of luck.
Think about it I mailed a package which is gone to USPS limbo and they just pretty much say TOO BAD SUCKER!!!! 180.00 dollars shot to hell plus the HUGE price of the amplifier.
PLEASE don't go through what I DID GO FEDEX, UPS, DHL, ANYTHING BUT THE US POST OFFICE!!!!!
