I ordered something from China, through eBay, and it was sent to Dead Mail. Since it was sent with SpeedPak, I do have tracking information for every step of its passage, but it's incompatible with USPS's tracking.
When I called yesterday, I was told my package would be sent back to sender, but when I called again tonight asking about if it would be sent to the Dead Letter Office, I was told my package would be destroyed.
I've submitted a lost package search request claim on the USPS website, but it's limited field of 4000 characters doesn't let me impart everything I know.
According to the SpeedPak information, my package arrived at my Post Office 7/24, was put out for delivery. Returned to the office, and was submitted to Dead Mail the same day. I called on 7/25, asking about it, and was given the story about how it'd be returned to sender. Today I called again (I believe talking to the same person) & was told my package would be destroyed.
I'm thinking of calling again & asking for a supervisor, since I got the impression the person I'm talking to doesn't really even know what happens with dead mail. I'm hopeful I might be able to still recover my package, but I'm not sure.
I can still got to eBay & likely get a full refund, but want to try to recover first, since I'm not entirely certain the sender is at fault. Since for all I know, the postal delivery person is at fault here, since I've only got their word that my address was incorrectly listed.
