I had one proportedly coming from Amazon. Passed it onto their scam email address.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

In the past, Iíve had emails from just about every bank and financial institution in the U.S. I donít have an account with any of them. I do however, have a Hotmail.com email account and not a .co.uk one.

just waded through the Royal Mail claims system, filling in their online claim form, to receive this

claim not eligable - I'm sorry we're unable to accept your claim. For Royal Mail signed for 2nd class items you must allow 10 working days from the due delivery date before we can treat the item as being lost

the item was posted 23rd July  :veryangry:

what a shower of  :censored:

so I've sold items to a fellow forum member, have posted them, he's paid me, and RM has lost the parcel but have sod all interest, waiting time on the phone 'help' line are over 50 minutes, and I am not able to supply replacements for some of the items sent as I only had one.

Itís only 10 days since posting and not delivery. I suspect you will need to wait another 4 days to try again.

As I understand it, 2nd class should take 2 - 3 working days. So if you allow 3 days, plus 10 working days, plus 2 weekends, that takes you to August 9th - try again then Alan. Good luck with it.

Addit: Malc just beat me to it, but the RM site does say 10 working days from the due delivery date. Apparently Saturday is a working day.

These scam advises are useful, perhaps a kind official would set up a permanent thread for them.

doesn't explain though how I was told last Friday by RM so called customer services [ see poost 1882 in Unhappy Thread]

'so when can I claim compensation for the 'missing' parcel and send a replacement one for you to lose'
'you can claim on line after 6 pm tonight'


mind you she told me , after putting me on hold while she 'checked' that I could only claim £20 maximum compensation, whereas the correct amount for 2nd signed for is £50.

you wait for ages on an 08457 number [how much does that cost?] and then get given duff info. >:(

I  tend to check them on who-called.co.uk to see if anyone else has been bothered by them

Never try to ring the numbers back (or any phone number you don't recognise) as one of the standard scams is doing this to get you to ring a premium rate number.

I thought that you had to wait 28 days after posting to make a claim from RM? Has that changed?

Either way depending on local circumstances I wouldnít give up hope yet - weíve had a few parcels take a substantially longer time than 2-3 days (the odd one longer than 14 days) for second signed for. But it has been entirely unpredictable and doesnít help in trying to work out what has happened as it depends on each stage of the RM that the parcel goes through and some have been hit much worse than others.
