Kamakzie said:UGH.. got a response but she messed up and gave me the incorrect tracking info because it shows it shipped from her location but was delivered to Carol Stream, IL last month!
Kamakzie said:She replied and said she had a 6 and a 1 reversed. The "correct" # doesn't show any info but from what my google search found thats not uncommon. Apparently when someone insures a package at the PO sometimes they aren't trackable in transit. USPS sucks! She said if its not here by Friday she will yell at the postal service. I suppose I should open a dispute next Monday if her yelling at the PO turns nothing up. I hope I get it tomorrow though...
Well I just checked and it says it was processed through Philly tonight.. The good news would be that it means the package is actually moving. The bad news is that it means there is no way in hades I'll have it tomorrow..
Well that's good news at least. Was this a factory sealed iPad that this person just resold?
USPS can take from 5 - 10 business days to get delivered and they are the crappiest (cheapest) delivery service. DO NOT accept any package that looks screwed up. If you accept it, you will get nothing but grief from the USPS. Also, they are the only delivery service to have lost shipments in transit to my house and filing a claim has been useless.
Thankfully you used PayPal to purchase the auction. Both PayPal and eBay are excellent when it comes to disputes.
If the package arrives and the outside looks good, have a camera ready. Make sure you actually received an IPad "3".
Can I ask why did you just not buy it retail to start with? And USPS?? Why not just send it via carrier pigeon..more reliable in some cases. Please keep us posted.. I have been watching this post since you made it. I hate you are dealing with what seems to be a flakey seller. Camera is a great idea but you won't need it. PayPal dispute and escalation is fantastic
Lol, all this headache so you can save 50 bucks, not worth it... Next time just get it off bestbuy or Walmart or even apple.
Kamakzie said:Well I'm disabled so its hard for me to get down to Best Buy and such. All BB had was the 64 gig model and I didn't think I would need that large. I went to Walmart afterwards and they didn't have any.
