Short Answer. No, I wouldn't have thought so.

I'd confirm with the seller what address they shipped it to.

do check with the seller as I can't help but feel that they might have simply had a mix-up with a package as quite possibly there is someone in the UK expecting a package from them but now is en-route to Pakistan!

Regardless, it is the seller's problem, insist they send you another one of the item you purchased or a refund.

I have not been notified of anything apart from the automated email from USPS so I went to my sorting office. The guy there said it will be at the central customs office and I will get a letter notifying me of the charges I have to pay and I can then pick it up from the sorting office. I asked how long and apparently usually 12 days, but at this time of year could take up to a month!!! Not happy

reguarly get parcels via usps and just checked a couple of old tracking numbers and it has details similar to yours........its likely sitting in your local parcelforce depot, I know it says post office, they used to say attempted delivery at that stage a few years ago but thats just the US status update terms

stick the tracking number into parcelforce website track and trace and if its a similar service that mine would come by you'll get a more accurate location and also an updated parcelforce tracking number linked to it so you can chase it up

the letter should only be a few days to a week but having said that theres been a couple of times I never got a letter but just went and collected (and paid) for it at the depot once the tracking said it was there

its crazy how you can get a parcel half way around the world in 24 hours, then it sits in a depot in Coventry for nearly a week, then they send you a letter for customs charges.

I've just got the same thing - 'awaiting customs clearance' in coventry. Been there since the 30th December. So I've lost several days due to the New Year, and now god knows when it'll clear.

I find it stupid that they send you a letter - if I'm tracking it, why can't I just pay online immediately and they deliver it, it'd save a couple of days. :suicide:
