Either way they lost the box and I'm out of hard earn money.
Either way they lost the box and I'm out of hard earn money.
In the past I have waited for the mail man to come by and asked them in person about a package.
I was able to find a package that was mistakenly delivered to a neighbor that way.
But.... the longer you wait the less likely they will remember the delivery.
What a dilly of pickle. Hope things get figured out. I had a package delivered to my parent's place Monday night via UPS. I heard the person outside the door and waited for the door bell. The delivery person just dropped the box off and left.
I have had 100s of packages delivered from the US to Canada. I am interested to see how this all plays out.
A friend of mine deals in high end watches. They can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars so he always sends them or has them sent to him loaded with insurance and requiring a signature from a specific person or persons. He tell me all the time that these packages are just left in his mailbox. And don't ask me where he lives.
Case number DE2412422
April 17, 2013
This is in further response to the inquiry you recently filed on an international Ordinary Parcel, article number CJ 174 318 125 US, which you sent to Canada.
The postal service of CANADA has advised us that this article was delivered on or about April 15, 2013.

When it wasn't found, you should have found the postman the next day and asked where it had been delivered. I am sorry you missed the package but the time to look was either the same day or the next and entering a complaint through a thread here wasn't the best use of your time or efforts. Sitting at home waiting for a delivery wasn't going to help.
I am sorry for the missed delivery and have done what I can to help.

The customs system strikes again ... Ivan Fonseca from Fonseca Sayas (AKA Tosho Knife Arts), and I are working on getting the insurance claim for my lost Fowler Suji, im pretty bumbed, i loved that knife and he had fashioned a slammin saya for it. somewhere in the mix it never got from one delivery service to the other and after a good 6 months of tracking and phone calls they are finally gonna call it Lost and elidgible for insurance claim. hopefully i have better luck when my P. Rodrigue is finished. :-(

"Whoa that is messed up....guess you really complain even if you wanted to considering the amount its worth.Btw I'm in need of high end watches myself, wanna be the middle man?Only need his address and I'm good to go(jokes lol) "
Glad to note that you are still laughing!. The above is hilarious! coupled with teh appropriate emoticon.. you are indeed a natural.
ON a serious note...
1. I think you shld be chasing the Canadian side. Any one can sign. Its the responsibility of the postman to prove that he had delivered and whether he did indeed got someone to sign and seeked the necessary verification.
On a serious note...
I think that you have a case..and you need to persevere! and go after the right person.
2. I wld make a police report eventhough they may brush me aside for as far as I am concerned, it has been stolen. Period! as tehy insisted that ti has been delivered. It they confirm that they have lost it, insurance wld come into play adn you wld be compensated. A police report shows a your item has been stolen as Canada Post now says that they ahve delivered to you adn the prime suspect is teh postman.HE HAS TO SHOW PROOF THAT HE DELIVERED TO THE RIGHT ADDERESS adn PROOF THAT THERE AS A PERSON THERE and the Person had some authority to receive on your behalf! IF he had made a mistake, he has to compensate you for your loss. You will have no case if he had been ringing your door bell twice each time! ( just kidding)
FI you can make yoru case on both parties Postman and Canadian Post in teh small claims court or tribunal.. then do it. Avoid Courts at all costs. They may send their in house lawyers.. but I reckon if you stay with teh bare facts that you did not receive your item and they have to show REAL proof that they have delivered to you safely and correctly you shld win. They duty is not just to send and jsut drop it at your house. IF no one is home, they can't leave it at your door step. They wld leave you a note to ask you to collect from the Post office. Please bring along your big big kitchen knives 330mm at least adn keep it visible so that they take you seriously ( just kidding)
3. I wld lodge my claim in a small claims court or a tribunal if they have such a set up.. No Lawyers.. you against the postman and Canadian post! A Cortroom legal case against the C. Post is pointless as the legal fees alone can buy you a few killer watches not to mention a few high end knives. YOu prepare your case and teh postman has to show that he has not been negligent and had exercised due care in his duty and delivered the item to you .
4. You will have no case against The Bpardsmith as he is in the clear as he has done his part when he shipped it out and has proof.
So if it is someone who has to pay.. it's the postman! IF you do nothing, it will be you. Who knows? if he had a long string of complaints , criminal records etc it will be a difficult case for him . Teh mere statement that he had delivered is not good enough. IF he delivered to the wrong party. he has to make good! Examples IF Boardsmith had shipped to the wrong party he has to make good. IN this case, Boardsmith did make good! SO zero in on the right target .
FInally.. dont announce to the whole forum of your good intentions to hit Dream Burls' friend's letter box. We are all witnesses to it.
So go after the right party. Avoid legal costs as Canada Post can really wear you down s you might end up paying for your legals fees adn theirs!
DAVID-The only reason I started this thread was because I thought usps messed up and wanted to see if anyone was in the same situation as me and how they dealt with it.
