EDIT: on on 3/27/07 I received my package. there was a tracking number on it. when checking the tracking number it said "The item left Hong Kong for its destination on 22-Mar-2007" so i don't know if it was held at the Hong Kong post office for months or if it was just sent. but anyway, I GOT MY DRESS!! thanks to everone (especially the mods) for helping to resolve the situation. ________________________________________ on 12/15/06 I sent $80 to "Fanny" (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/member.php?u=4113) for a dress set she listed here on DOA. since it was an international package i waited patiently for it to arrive. I contacted her a month later when it did not arrive, even by the slowest method of sending packages to tell her it did not arrive. she responded "the dress set had been set out on 18th December which was monday. In my past experience, airmail took about 10-14 days to be sent to USA. However, it had been nearly a month after parcel sent, i will go to post office and see the status. i will tell you the answer i get from post office tomorrow." She did not PM me "tomorrow" but after another gentle reminder she did PM me with "the office said that if the address is an error and cannot be found, the dress will be returned to sender's address" ... I waited a little longer, and said that it has not arrived and she needs to file a claim on this package as i have not received it. I have PMed her since a few more times with no response. guess i lose out on $80! It looks like she never claimed anything at the post office, and has not sent me any tracking or proof that the dress was sent out. I know she is online and posting to DOA since she has posted here twice yesterday and once on the 22nd, so she is just ignoring me now. would you like to lose out on $80? if so, feel free to do business w/ this person.
