Did you PM him since. He is listed on the Official Postive Feedback Thread

My last shipment from someone else from Singapore to New York was about 4 weeks.

Updated on the issue with Peter:

Paid for an item I never received from Peter. Claims he has tracking info that he has not provided; suspiciously I do not believe he has any and is just giving me the run around. Paid for the item Oct. 24th and Christmas day will be just over 3 months. Refuses to provide a refund. Some have reported good experiences with him but I'm offering a warning to potential buyers; he is difficult to work with, does not communicate well and promises tracking info that he never sends. He also has a similar issue with another buyer so I'm not the only one. Hopefully he will see this and remedy the problem with the refund I am due. Crossing my fingers.

Hi VII, It takes some items a long time to get here from Singapore and half the stuff gets lost in the shuffle. Caulk it up to a lesson learned not to buy from over there. It is bad enough here in the states with things getting lost in the mail. Sure hope you were not out a lot of money.

Cheers,
Larry

Heya Larry. I've purchased many items from overseas and never once had an issue. In fact, in over 15 years of buying and selling close to 1k items, I never once had a lost package. I even just had a couple packages of inexpensive chinese electronic items come in within the last week in about 3 weeks from the time I placed my order (hdmi cables and other garbage). It wasn't much but it's the principal of the matter. Peter has claimed he has shipping info but in 3 months he has not once provided it which seems very fishy to me. Anyway, it's not a big loss but it is my money and if he cannot prove he shipped the item (I am ALWAYS able to prove the items I ship) then I deserve a refund. Ultimately it comes down to a lesson learned and reminds me of how much I hate people from singapore (only kidding ).

You're right VII -- both in expecting a refund if he can't produce the shipping info, and in warning others here. You're also right about the reliability of int'l shipping -- of the hundreds of packages sent and received by USPS/Auspost, I've had exactly one that didn't show. And guess what -- like you, based on his communication I'm 99.98% sure the guy never sent it in the first place. USPS provides a very reliable and consistent service in my experience, and I suspect get blamed unfairly when things go wrong due to "user error" -- poor packaging, misaddressing, etc. Not to mention a convenient scapegoat to cover basic dishonesty.

So here's a "Merry Christmas" to you, and all the dedicated postal workers at USPS and Auspost on their "appointed rounds" these holidays.

Thumbs up

Just received my package from Peter. Well within his predicted range of 3-15 weeks (came in at 9 weeks).

I've been waiting 3 months for a package to arrive from Singapore to Australia !

I've sent him numerous messages but now his inbox is full.

Anyone got an email address for him ?

Thanks Andrew
