I received notification this evening at 7:45PM EST (4:45PM PST) that the package has been
sent, along with a refund of $27.70 to my Pay Pal and her apologies for getting over her head.

I was also messaged via Gmail's chat client at 8:01PM EST(5:01PM PST) by Audri with her apologies, about why it was delayed, and the in addition during next week that I would be refunded $165.00 and to keep the package for my troubles. I explained to her that despite her wanting to refund everything, I only wanted the package and the $27.70 refunded. If she wishes to send the full amount, it is fine. I will be happy to hold on to it, inspect the package contents, and send the $165.00 back to her.

While being instant messaged at 8:01PM EST(5:01PM PST), I had contacted the Camas, WA PD at 7:41PM EST (4:41PM PST) to go over proceedings due to finding out she would be moving two weeks post February 15 noted on her Facebook account's Wall tab, which made it look like she might possibly be leaving without sending a package and keeping the payment. The email popped up as well as her chat, which I mentioned to the officer during our conversation. He did want to verify that she lived at her residence, which he was unable to at the time (the chat ended at 8:59PM EST (5:59 PST), stopping by the address at 9:15PM EST (6:15PM EST). He will be making an additional attempt to do so.

While chatting, I did mention to Audri that since it has been sent and the $27.70 was refunded, that no legal action will currently be taken place, but an officer will be stopping by to verify her residence.

The package is being sent 7-day USPS with tracking. I will be posting photos and possibly video when it is received and opened, and posting an updated post here. Thank you everyone who has given your feed back and Audri for getting in touch with me and resolving this matter.

Audri, I wish you well with your move and I hope from this situation you have learned an important life lesson.

Wait. Seven-day USPS?

This person sent the package via Parcel Post?

Unfortunately, yes. I specified 2-day, but there is tracking and it's sent. As long as it's on its way it's fine and will be waiting its arrival.

Well if any of you are in an area being hit by the storms, the package could get delayed even further.

I sent a First Class parcel today and the receipt said estimated delivery was... MARCH 3. D:

Out of curiosity, why is the date March 3 that bad/surprising for mailing something today? That's only 3 full business days, really.

Well, I don't get any estimates on receipts unless something really bad, weather-wise, is going on.

Also, my first class parcels normally get delivered in two business days. Three at most.

Ah, ok. I didn't know they gave estimates when the weather was bad. That's good to know! (also, I didn't realize any mail-sorters work on Sunday. It may depend on the location as well. Our mail sorters definitely don't work on Sunday. It's a tiny branch in a small town, and there are never any employee cars there on Sunday.)

Thanks!

There's actually a receiving office located here in Richmond opened on Sundays. I learned this by accident when a friend had something delivered two years ago (and what his full first name was).

Sorry, I meant to say, something I send on Friday usually gets delivered on Monday. Not Wednesday. You might thing the USPS doesn't work on Sundays, but mail sorters apparently do work the day.

It's been pretty nice down in Ce VA. I'm hoping it makes it in one piece. No more Snow Doom here.

i was pissed about other things at the time

however, it did anoy me a little that this seemed to be at least one of the more sensable post, but the OP talkied about the poor spelling and grammer which i felt a little childish

it was a privet seller, not a buisiness. the guy had problems which happens. i just thought it was a bit of a shame is all. otherwise all those involved acted like adults as far as i can see. no biggy i guess, but as i say things were getting to me

I've actually found USPS to be very very fast in regards to packages, I've had packages come from Texas to me here in MA during a Nor'Easter within 2 days of being sent the cheapest way possible. Sometimes it's slow but in the hundreds I have sent out most do not take the estimated time to arrive. tracking = good. *crosses fingers for ya*

So wait why does a police officer still have to be sent to her house?

He wanted to verify that she lived there. I did ask him since the email, Pay Pal notice, and live IM popped up if it was still necessary. He said it was for his open case log.
