How do you know he didn't send it?
Maybe your buddy Mondail didn't share with you the exact same thing happening to him.
The missing wheel has landed(Re: Scott CBR400RR)
Couldn't find the original thread where he was screaming bloody murder about it all, yet you can at least see the fact that his item arrived. Granted it took a long time, but through no fault of the seller. And to add injury to insult he had caused a huge issue jumping the gun with PP too.
Although, can't imagine he didn't refer you to his experience seeing as i pointed it out in his posting then all went dead.
I don't know this guy, and who knows...maybe your parts were never sent. But unless you have proof of that then your simply venting frustration with it taking so long to get your part. If your parts weren't sent then i certainly hope it gets resolved amicably, yet i can't see how calling someone names and cursing at them will resolve anything. And if you didn't pay extra for shipping the item where it can be tracked, then being in the dark really falls on you.
Can't help but think back on my experiences(i.e. frustrations) with shipping to AU.
In case you aren't aware of this your country's post/customs is notoriously inept. At least when it comes to delivery of international shipments. The only reason they can find their asshole is because their heads are firmly implanted within. Have sent stuff Global Express from the U.S. with a 3 day delivery guarantee, and the package disappeared from the computers after leaving the U.S.(the same day i dropped the package off for shipping). The package was completely lost to the ether and never showed up in anyone's computer until it hit the destination 3.5 weeks later. Stuff sent priority.....forget it! Have had items not get delivered for 8-10 weeks when it should have take 2 weeks max. One time it took over 4 months. I wont go on about how dysfunctional trying to get a package delivered over there, but as mentioned earlier your boy certainly knows. This is why i'm reluctant to cast blame with such little time going by and ZERO proof. I say little time as relative to how long it normally takes.
I'll ask you the same thing i asked mondial.....when did you send payment? When you paid for the item did you spring for the "express" shipping which is the only way to confirm some sort of limited tracking? Not that the Aus. Post could find anything on their end if their own life depended on it because tasks like this seem to fall into the category of "that's not my job" when trying to get any help from over there. If you only sprung for regular priority shipping then you could be waiting for a very long time.
The best you can do is just stay on your local post office and have them try to trace it down. If not lost somewhere in the postal system chances are it is sitting at customs as someones temp. coffee table or foot stool. I can certainly feel ones frustration with it all, and i hope it all works out in the end. Just remember the vitriol espoused today may be the sauce on the crow one might find themselves having to eat later.
