Lost package? Worse.Lost package? Worse.

MisiMisi3 years agoDiary
I've been buying stuff online for almost 15 years, and this is the first time something like this happens to me.

Weeks ago, I purchased this lovely Mami prize figure ITEM #96914 at Mandarake Fukuoka. I paid (using registered SAL as almost always), they sent me the tracking number...everything was fine, until I decided to check how my package was doing. And it appeared as delivered on October 31. What? I never received anything, and there wasn't any notification in my mailbox either.

Today I went to my post office to ask about it, and it was really frustrating. They told me it already had been delivered, and that I should talk with the chief of my post office, but he wasn't there at the moment.
When I was going back home I met my local postman, and he told me there was some fuss today on the post office, because apparently some package got misdelivered to another part of my country. I can't stop thinking they were talking about mine. It's a small town, people don't receive a lot of packages from Japan here...

I'm heartbroken. It's not a really expensive figure, she costed me 2500 JPY + shipping costs. But if someone received her already it's unlikely they'll give it back, isn't it?
Is there something I can do? I'm really bummed, and from now on I'm going to feel very worried about all the packages I have incoming :(

I'm going through a lost package thing at the moment too, except mine was a $350 hot toys figure I got from Japan (amiami). >.> It got to Canada went through customs and disappeared and the last update was almost a month ago. I contacted the post office and they were no help at all (insisting that it will show up eventually) but finally I contacted amiami and they're having Japan Post look into it. I still haven't heard anything yet, but I have my fingers crossed. At least EMS has insurance....

And go with xcupidxstuntx's advise. That's the best you can do. Good luck and I hope you get your package! :)

I've found that most of the time, misdeliveries are at nearby addresses. I had a similar thing happen with a package that was marked as delivered, and it ended up at the neighbor's two houses down. I found out because I received their package, and when I went to give it to them, they said they had two for me! Our house numbers are not even that similar, and the delivery dates were a couple of days apart.

Since I am probably the one who gets the most packages from Japan in my neighborhood, everytime they saw something from there they delivered it to me;
Once, among some other like 10 boxes, they mixed up 1 HLJ box for some "Agustin" (my name is Agustina) and it had some Car model kit inside
It looked pretty cool, but it wasn't mine, so I walked like 10 blocks to give it to the guy who ordered it (the address was there and it was close by).

Maybe you'll have the same luck :)

if its Sal registered someone has to sign for the box right?

At least they do when I get them at my home. there is no way I am leaving boxes at my front door step in the snow. When I go to the post office I need to show ID and sign for it. So would it not be the same who ever signed for the box could give them a clue who got the box.

And if you want to file a claim then you can say that your signiture is not the same as the person that signed for the figurine.

xcupidxstuntx (3 years ago) #2437039You need to go back to the post office when the chief is in and/or file a claim (also contact Mandarake because sometimes the sender has to file the claim). At best, your package will be put back into the post by the other person, or you'll get a full refund because of the insurance. Good luck!

Thanks, I'll do!
