Default A good example of why USPS delivery notification can't be trusted.

I sent a package via usps back in Feb. This is the tracking number 420799129101785091401538054074 . As you can see, it was marked "delivered" to the paypal confirmed address (I used paypal to generate the shipping label), so when the buyer didn't get it, we basically decided it was lost..

Then almost two weeks later it was marked as undeliverable, then two weeks after that it was marked address unknown and returned to me. The buyer and I talked about this, and since this time I've resent it to another address and the buyer got it, but this is just a perfect example of how f*cked up USPS can be. So if you don't get your package right away, or USPS shows it delivered but you don't have it, don't immediately assume the seller was a "scammer". Sometimes it's just the carrier screwing up. We're pretty sure whoever it was delivered to sat on it for a couple weeks before tossing it back in the mail "return to sender" (btw, it was a girl's writing on the package, and the package was never opened). Why it was never delivered to the correct address after that no one knows.. My next large shipping item is going UPS I think.
