Inside your mind, corrupting the pathways

WaaaaghLord and I agreed to a trade on the 15th of September, after seeing his trading thread.

I agreed to trade 61 grots - 40 old space ork era, and 21 mixed new and slightly old metals. Several of which are oilers, ammo runts/gun crew etc (picture) to him for 6 oop Harlequins and Kharn (original picture url = http://i471.photobucket.com/albums/rr75/joespeak/DSC00375.jpg).

I posted the grots on Saturday the 18th of September (at 11.30 according to the receipt from the post office - I can upload a scan of this if required) and was told they would probably arrive on the Monday or Tuesday. WaaaaghLord also stated via PM that he had posted on the same day.

We kept in touch over the following week with neither of us having received the items sent by the other. The same happened the next week. We agreed that if we had not received the items after 15 working days (the length of time for the Royal Mail lost mail report to kick in), I would start a transaction report, which I have now done. I will also post a link to this thread in his trading thread as well as my own.

As of yet he has not sent me a PM saying he has received the items he has sent, and I have not received the items he has sent. I believe he may have edited his original trade post saying that he requires less grots than he originally required, but I am not certain.

Would people recommend that I file a lost post report with RM? Or some other course of action?

Thanks for any advice. And if any further information is required, I will be happy to supply it.

WaaaaghLord's last active posting was 10/06, so he is still relatively active on the forums.

Pop over to Ketara's post here about how to handle potential scammers (towards bottom of thread):

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/247459.page

Me personally, I would wait a few more days (by about midway next week) and see if those items come in.

Then decide what to do next.

Just keep PMing him for him to respond (daily, not every minute).

Does the Royal Mail not have package tracking options?

They do and ordinarily I would have used tracking, but the trade was so small I did not think it was worth it, which shows me really...

I plan to go to the post office I sent the package from tomorrow and see what they say. I will take all the info I have with me as well.

Just to update:

I have completed an inland P58 (lost mail) form and am on my way to post it (by the way, the post office, RM website and RM phone lines are all rather unhelpful when it comes to reporting possible mail fraud).

I have sent in information about possible mail fraud using the report a fault with our service form on the RM website.

Basically, everything that SilverMK2 has said is accurate.

I sent mine on Friday, 17th September at 10.32 at Bridge St. Post Office in St Helens, according to my reciept.

The reason I edited the number of Grotz on my post was because I bought 2 boxes of plastic Grotz, reciept for which I can scan in if this is in question.

I'll head over and fill in a lost mail form now, and see what can be done from there.

Hi there, WaaaaghLord - just a quick question, but is the package you sent the models in letter box sized? I was just wondering if it were too big to fit through the door they may have taken it back to the package office and not left a note for me.

Yours was in an A4 sized padded envelope so I would imagine that it would fit through your letter box.

Just find it a bit weird that they have both gone missing (I know RM are crap, but hey ).

Mine was in a small white box stuffed with bubble wrap, so that's a complete possibility.
I know, I was thinking the same. That said I've had them deliver packages late sent for next day delivery, totally unreliable.

I've not heard anything back from RM as of yet, however, I'm going to pick up a package (which is not these models - it is something else ) today so I will ask the people there if they have any telephone numbers etc that I might be able to contact regards this issue.

Also not had anything model-like through the post.

Same goes here, I filled in the lost mail form on the 10th, and still haven't heard anything. I'll head down to our post office tomorrow and do the same.

I've as yet had nothing through from RM regards my lost post claim (even a "no"). I will be contacting them again when I get home tonight.

WaaaaghLord has not told me that he has heard anything either.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Strangely there was a letter from RM waiting for me when I got home. Basically "we have no idea what happened to your package, have the cost of your postage back".

Unless WL has something else to add, MODs please feel free to lock this thread.

Think we will have to chalk this one up to experience. Not particularly happy about that, but once bitten, twice shy.
