I have been buying and selling for at least 5-6 years and have
recently had more problems with MEDIA mail than ever!

One experience~my friend and I did a trade. Neither used dc
or insurance as we have been friends many years. She sent me
4 boxes, media, all mailed the same day. I received 22 boxes
about a week or so later, then the 3rd box. 4th never came.
After several weeks, she got a letter from the po and it said her
box was soo badly damaged and contents lost, she would need
to fill out a LONG form, to hopefully loc,ate the books. She did.
But, weeks later the po said they were never able to find AnY of
the books~all Abeka books, over $200 worth~LOST.

Another experience~I mailed a set to a buyer, ho paid $275ppd.
I put insurance on it and mailed, MEDIA. After over 2 weeks,
she said the box was at her po and was in such bad shape, she
had to go pick it up (small town where the po folks new her).
She said half the books were missing, and filed pp dispute.
Even though I had insurance on it, she got to keep the books
she did get, and received a full refund. I was out all the books
and $ . I tried to fight it through pp~BUT~CAUTION****pp
almost always sides with the buyer!!!!!.

Another experience, I've had many many packages show up
ripped, literally falling part, etc, WITH MEDIA INSPECTION
stamped on the package!!! So the po IS opening media
packages, and NOT taping them back up well, which is leading
to a huge mess!!!

Is it REALLY their right to open MY box!!!???

I think, although it costs more, send UPS!!! The po clams they
are loosing $ and need to cut jobs~if the'd quit cutting boxes
and send them a bit quicker, they wuldnt need to cut jobs!.!

I could go on and on, but baby feeding time. Ahhh
