Just to be clear - did your original package finally arrive, or did you get a consolation package?
No, the initial parcel never turned up. This is the third place prize in the voting.

To be clear, it was me sending to zimagic. This time around I sent it to St Nic himself who added a couple of cards for me, and then the package went missing between St Nic and zimagic. Still, it had to be my package that went wrong. Again. The third time in a row.

You gotta stop using pure uncut cocaine and C-4 as packing filler. Customs frowns on that.

It was clearly marked "GIFT. HOOKERS AND BLOW. STREET VALUE $25,000". What else am I supposed to do?

You aren't the only cursed one, last year my replacement package to SWMystery went missing and both of our packages to BKM hid out for an extra month or more before delivery.

To further clarify:
- Viperion sent to me on 2 Dec
- I received the package on 8 Dec, and sent it forward to zimagic on 9 Dec.
- I started getting worried when zimagic was about to go on vacation and hadn't received it (it was supposed to be 6-10 days international priority mail)
- Due to the holidays, expecting delays, I waited to contact the post office until after the New Year.
- Around 6-7 Jan I was told the tracking was not updating because it was International and was likely delayed by customs.
- 25 Jan a formal investigation was opened. I finally spoke to a customer service agent with a clue. Upon going through all the details, informed me that the post office had screwed up a few things (such as tracking would have been possible if they had me use the correct customs form rather than the CN22 - codes starting with LC###... - which is not trackable after leaving the US.)
- 25 Jan is also when I sent the Third Place Parcel out to zimagic, which apparently arrived fine.
- 26 Jan I received a phone call from the local branch manager and she is working the local investigation, I am due to call her back today (my day off).

If I can recover the parcel, I will send it back out and let everyone know.

I believe it's customary for the middleman to get a cut. There's your problem - you forgot his share.

You Americans and your weird customs. Over here, the customs guy usually hand delivers it, and he gets his cut from there.

("Customs". "Cut". I kill me :P )
