    I have had problems with Royal mail in the last 14 days to be honest, Some items I have sent to eBay customers have been severly delayed and some mail that I have been waiting for has also been delayed. I doubt someone has stolen it and if it was a camera was a track and trace service used?

    amazon have a great policy though - I've had an order for a book not arrive. Got in touch with amazon and they sent another. Why not get in touch with them. Apparently they reclaim from Royal Mail when things like this happen.

    They may be able to get a replacement to you by tomorrow if you call them now

    Check your local parcel office first. The posties don't always put a card through your door to say they've been. Hope you get it.

    I ordered it through Amazon, but it was actually dealt with and sent out by a subsiduary company called Purely Gadgets - u know - they use Amazon to sell stuff through, like a shop on eBay.

    I emailed them and they said if I dont receive it before 18th June I will get a full refund - poor girl, its her bday today but Im sure she'll understand - I ordered it a week ago so its not like I could have done much more.

    Apart from have it sent by the Queens security guard or something!

    Fingers crossed everyone! x x x

    Don't get me started! I have had so many problems with Royal Mail. A particular peeve of mine is when they leave "signed for" parcels on the door step when there's nobody in!! It's happened so many times lately! What's the point in paying the extra for the service??

    Dont get me started on ROYAL MAIL grrrr...

    I sent back my wedding ring (wrong size) via recorded delivery, it never made it to its destination.:mad: has disappeared into thin air!

    I am gutted, cant claim for it and now i have to buy another one, unfortunately i dont trust the post now as another parcel (something different) was sent out to me a month ago and never arrived.

    Gotta settle for a different type of ring too as the only place i could get this particular one was online.

    I remember I had to send my passport and marriage certificate as part of an ID thing for my mortgage. It was all sent securely by registered mail and completely disappeared! You can imagine the panic with all this identity theft going on! Once passport was cancelled there wasn't much more that could be done. Royal mail did pay for my new passport to be issued and my passport and marriage licence turned up 8 months later.

    Amazon are usually pretty good with these sorts of things and have a process you can go through to reclaim if it doesn't arrive. (I was ordered some DVD's that didn't arrived and got a refund after a while)

    But yes... Royal Mail have been a bit of a nightmare for me latley, loads of the goods I send out from my websites have not reached my customers and an envelope containing invoices going to the VAT office has also gone missing- the VAT office are now going to charge me £2000 because I don't have the invoices GRRRR!

    Hope it arrives soon and that your daughter has a great day! x
