Okay Ill Try to Make This Short:



  • I Ordered a $90 item from china.
  • I Used the wrong address ( Everything was wrong Name and Address)
  • I Tried Contacting owner of wrong address Several different ways
  • He finally replies after 7 days and says stop harassing him he doesn't live at the address anymore
  • I Contact Post office (Local and Headquarters), they can't do anything for international packages
  • I Just checked Tracking, Package Is suppose to arrive in 5 more days

So Now I'm desperate I am trying to come up with solutions. Here's what I have:


  1. Send the current resident a letter with my phone number and email.
  2. Send A priority Mail Letter with a prepaid shipping label to the current resident, asking them to attach and return it.
  3. Call the local post office, and beg the mail lady to tell the person to call me when she drops it off.
  4. Call the local police office (Im desperate lol) and ask them to tell the person (yeah probably won't do this one)

Any better ideas or which one would you do?

Accept you lost you $90 and move on, lesson is always double check everything - On and Offline
 
I would forget about it tbh, the time you spent already trying to get it back isn't worth $90
 
You have two options

1. Kiss the $90 goodbye

2. In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The A-Team

One problem with that is if you can find them then you can hire the ATeam, bit more than $90 LOL!
 
Damn man, that's one heck of a problem. As soon as I read it, because I could tell how desperate you were, I thought I'd have probably tried all of the solutions you suggested - I mean, what could you possibly lose by trying? Especially number 2, because you prepaid for it and you're asking them, which they might do.

But I do also agree with others, you may have just lost the $90 man.
 
If you shipped it by Fedex/UPS, you can pay Fedex/UPS plus membership and use your receipt to change the deliver address.

By USPS? It's already a gift.
 
Call to whatever company is doing a delivery. Ask for a rep, tell them that the address on file is not correct and you will need to redirect the package. All they will ask is the original name on the receipt etc. You can probably leave the name the same without changing to yours as they dont care much as long as it gets to the address on file.

This wont cost you anything.
