   I am a resident of Phoenix Az.  Age 69, ex-Army


         I UPS'd my leather flight jacket (valued at  and insured for $300) to Branded Leather at 43-11  36th St in Long Island City, where the package was signed for by "Pete" (Peter Farkal?) on 7 Aug at 12:28 p.m.     ( I sent my jacket there as that company had manufactured it ,and I bought it back in mid 1990's)    Previous phone call with Peter (he identified himself as such), I was told repairs would take one day.  After a week, I contacted him again and was told it would ship Thurs or Fri  (14th or 15th Aug).  (he'd been on vacation a few days)


         As I had provided a pre-paid UPS return label, I looked for tracking information and found NONE. [continued below]....
.....  On Mon 18 Aug, Peter told me it had shipped on the 15th.


           As of yesterday, 20 Aug,  UPS has still not scanned the return label, so I wrote to Peter again, asking that he look into the matter and advise me.


           It is now 8 p.m. in NYC and I have not gotten a response.  I do have proof that my emails have been opened/read...yesterday's being read at 4:16 p.m. NY time.


          If my personal jacket was lost or ruined, I'd expect a new replacement ( which are manufactured and sold by Branded Leather)  plus reimbursement for shipping, insurance, squadron patches that were to be stitched on, and my check for $48 that I was told to include with the jacket.  The total would be roughly  $446 before sales tax.


          Peter Farkal is also listed for business known as Orchard Motorcycle Distributors, Inc  address of 36-06 43d Ave    "a domestic business corporation, file number 854091"
