I ordered a radio from Hong Kong, China on eBay. The expected delivery date was somewhere between December 1st and 14th. I had not received the item in question by the fourteenth so I contacted the seller, who provided tracking information which indicated the package had been delivered to the post office on the 18th of November. They supposedly left 2 notices (neither of which I saw, and I get mail every day, though it is a family house) on the 18th and 21st. They claim to wait 30 days before return, yet they waited 18 days and returned it to China. This all occurred before I even expected to see the package.
The bottom line is: who do I blame? Shipping cost $15 and I will most likely have to pay three times that to receive my package when all is said and done, not to mention the fact that I've missed Christmas. What is the post office's legal duty in this situation? Were they supposed to wait 30 days and deliver 3 notices? If that is the case, the post office is at fault, correct? This is USPS.1 AnswerGovernment1 decade ago
