  • USPS shipping. HANDLE WITH CARE!! It looks like Michael Jordan did a slam dunk from freethrow line with my package.....not to mention, it was left out in the rain. All magazines had bends and damage from water stain..Life goes on lol.

That's always disappointing! Sorry to see this . . . I hope you didn't spend too much $ on this lot of NBM's. If it was Priority w/ insurance you may be able to recoup your costs, at least.

I have had this happen on a number of occasions too.

I got them cheap. I messaged the guy prior to purchasing. He assured me that he could package well. My mail guy asked if I wanted to reject the package due to damage. Not worth it. Then you gotta go through Ebay resolution and minus shipping cost etc... I dont know if it was the guys fault or USPS. At what point did USPS put the tape on? The guy had a feedback score if 35. I took a chance, and failed. Lol. Most sellers know how to package with bags, bubble wrap, tape, etc... Even as bad as this box took a beating, the magazines would be okay and not wet.  Thanks, Scott.

You never really know. The guy could have been offended that I requested him to package well. He then takes the box and drops it from his balcony several times, leaves it out in the weather until USPS picks it up next day.

Ya never know. Football is in season. The mail guys started running scrimmage in the mail room while using my package to kick the fieldgoals.

I won't false accuse..whats done is done. Next time, I may only purchase from sellers with proven feedback.
