    Update

    David has contacted them and has open up a dispute with canada post.All I have to do now is wait a few weeks and hope the mix up is cleared.If they indeed sent it to the wrong person and they don't intend to return it I hope that person will treat her well, she was a beau that I might never get to meet and I even had the beeswax and mineral oil all prepared

    That sucks IamT, I've had heaps of stuff shipped from all over the world and never had a problem with the fine folks at Canada Post. For future reference, if you're getting something valuable shipped, it can be a good call to get the person who is shipping it to do so using a level of service that requires a signature on the delivery end. I recently had a watch shipped to me from overseas and it was signed for by my landlord who lives in the unit above. Within two hours of delivery I could see the name of the person who signed for the delivery and even a scan of their signature on the Canada Post website. My guess is your board will show up in the next day or two as soon as they figure out what's going on. Fingers crossed!

    Thank you for the encouragement I'm feeling alot better now.Worst comes to worst, this might be a very expensive lesson(hopefully it won't get there).Also from now on that is exactly what I'm going to do, ask for a require signature service.The only thing that makes me boil is the fact that on their site it is stated as delivered meaning someone might have their hands on the board at this very moment which I paid hard earn cash for.

    To recap: The board was shipped by Priority Mail International on 4/8. It is shown today as delivered on the USPS web site but they depend on accurate information from Canada Post. I did start an international claim and the lady on the other end said they usually get the deliveries made soon after. But it could take up to 21 days for the investigation by Canada Post to be complete.

    As an aside, starting when the new web site goes live, any board whose value is over $200 will go with a signature required for delivery. The current package being discussed was less value and would not have come under that requirement.

    I hope the board is found.

    Don't fret too much, sometimes the systems dont mesh 100%. I have had a 115 838 427 marked as delivered, only to be delayed by several days. By my post masters own mouth, "the tracking system is not that great".

    Thank you david for the quick actions and I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

    I don't live in Canada so can't speak with 100 percent knowledge on this sort of situation, but have you tried going to the actual post office and seeing if they have it there? The USPS delivery guy here has always, and I mean ALWAYS just left one of their cards saying they tried to make the delivery but nobody was home. I work from home, so I'm always home. What I always end up having to do is go to the actual post office and pick up whatever item it is that was supposed to be delivered. It's not really that big of an issue, and in a way I'm grateful that it doesn't get left in the weather or subject to being stolen if for whatever reason I don't hear them when they come knocking. Just a thought.

    That is something that crossed my mind but when I called in/track, they said it was already off to a "address' but I will still def go anyways in the morning just incase.

    Man everytime ups drops off a package I have a problem. Today I received memory for a new computer, knowing that I wouldn't be home I left a note on the door saying to put in garage. The left it on the porch. Wouldn't be a problem in about a mo., but it snowed over a foot last night. Was still snowing when they dropped it off. Nothing like a wet package full of memory.
    Chewie's the man.
