Default What Would You Do in This Situation?

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?

1 - I would go with that option

2 - If they get on contact with you after method 1 then do method 2 so that they are not out of pocket

3 - I would not do that

4 - No way should you be doing that

1 and 2 are the calmer approach.

3 and 4 are not steps a business person would consider.

Good Luck

Call it a loss and don't make the mistake again. Lesson learned.

Anyone would find it very odd that you somehow put in a completely incorrect address. I don't blame the guy for telling you to stop harassing him. As far as he knows you are a creeper or mass murder or drug dealer.

Default Re: What Would You Do in This Situation?

if someone wrote to me and wanted a package, I would refuse. It could be a scam.

If it was just wrong address, that would be one thing, but the wrong name too, you cannot even prove it to anyone....

it is $90, it will not ruin your life. Mental tip - If I lose money somewhere and want to feel better, I make a saving somewhere, that I would not have otherwise done, and it cancels out......

I have a question. Why in the world would you order something from China using someone else's address, whom you do not even know? Is your address blacklisted by customs or something? I just don't understand the logic here..

If I received a $90 order that was specifically addressed to me that I knew I didn't order, I would immediately open the package and put the contents up for sale.

He bought from a stealth account and never edited the details at checkout. It is very easy to do. This is an educated guess, but most likely the case being on a stealth forum.

I guess you could be right. But if he's operating a stealth account with someone else's actual details, that's risky business. I have no way of contacting any of the fictitious people who's name my accounts are made in.. That's why I didn't consider this being an eBay Stealth purchase.

He never said it was someones name. He said the address was real. Example, I use empty house addresses, but at some point, those houses will not be empty.
Some people grab addresses out of the white pages etc..

Today, you can not make up an address, so this is going to happen on every single account ever made the past few years, even if you don't use anyone's address, it will eventually be someones....

No I ran out of a product and dropshipped it from a wholesale site that has a USA factory. The persons details were left as default. I was negotiating with a seller and as soon a she gave me the price I wanted I entered credit card details and forgot I actually needed to cancel the order and re-enter the address correctly.
