USPS Won’t Cover A Lost Package They Insured — 14 Months Ago!

ELK GROVE (CBS13) — More than a year after the United States Postal Service insured and shipped his package, Eric Bush said the federal department still won’t pay his insurance claim for lost mail.

He paid USPS for tracking and insurance on a parcel to buyer Italy.

It was only worth about $30, so Bush wasn’t too worried — but he doesn’t understand why his insurance claim is being denied.

    One word: Italy.

    We sell a lot of items on eBay, and have shipped hundreds of packages all over the world. Tracking has gotten better lately on international shipments. It used to be, tracking ceased when the item left the USA. International shipments are risky because if there is no proof of delivery, eBay will refund the customer’s money.

    What really burns my butt is, there are a lot of Chinese sellers on eBay USA. They can send a little package dirt cheap from China with excellent tracking from where it was sent to where it’s delivered with delivery confirmation. I know, because I’ve scanned a lot of their items.

    They can undercut USA seller’s prices a lot. I’ve even seen items declared for $10.00 and less sent registered mail from China to the USA, and we have to fill out a 3849 and get a signature.

    My guess is, we’re subsidizing their shipments, which adds to USPS losses.
