I bought something off Gumtree and the seller posted it out to me on December 18th. It STILL hasn't arrived. It was a Christmas gift for DS coming from Queensland. I figured with the xmas/new year period there would be a delay but this is ridiculous. I've already paid the person and spoke to them again last week and was reassured it was definitely sent out on the the 18th and basically there's nothing they can do. They didn't get a tracking number,
either. (it was a smallish parcel they said and they just didn't think to get one).
Shouldn't it have reached me by now? I paid this person direct into their bank account but fully trust it wasn't a scam etc. If anything I think it may have been delivered to the wrong address by mistake... or is such a long delay normal?
