    Be careful shipping interational!

    Im about to get boned by user Samui
    http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/member.php?u=8242

    I shipped it via the cheapest method possible (USPS with no tracking) to meet his price requirements, sent him the customs form showing i mailed it, and then he disputed the transaction saying he didnt get it .... a month later.

    Gonna eat my 150 dollar lumps for being an idiot and expecting someone to be honest on the other end.

    Is it possible the package is still in transit?

    It certainly is, but I cant prove it either way. USPS told me it left the country December 15, but dont have any other info. Chances are, he got the item and knows I cant prove it either way. As I found out, this is a common scam.

    I've been doing a lot of international shipping lately. USPS priority is the only way I'll do it. If they don't want to pay, then I move on. It's decently fast and provides tracking.

    Learning this the hard way, but fortunately it wasn't a ton of money. Will end up losing about 150 bucks.

    Do you have a number from the form you filled out? It should start with 'CF"....thats your tracking number.

    I went through this with a GPS I sold on eBay. I had all the emails from buyer asking to ship a specific way, cheapest and no insurance. A month later disputed it, but I won.
    From now on I only ship insured and if buyer doesn't like the cost then they don't buy.

    I find it amusing how the post office puts a bunch of stickers on the box when you insure it. Basically telling everyone DONT DAMAGE OR LOSE THIS PACKAGE!!!
    If you put fragile on there it gets more beat up than anything

    Ha! Yup. They had an episode about that before. If a package said fragile then they would almost see if the could damage it. Certainly not cool.

    Yeah the number on the bar code .. Just says "tracking not available to Italy" ... When the guy at the post office looked it up he said he called someone who said it left the country but had no further data. We will see what PayPal says I sent them scans of the receipt for shipping and the stamped customs form
