Re: UPS delivery - be VERY careful

Joe Zeglinski


Well the UPS screw up saga continues!

That OPT shipment from California to Canada, I described below - and
thought was finally out of courier hell - well UPS sent me a bill for all the
duty, and government taxes, and of course UPS C.O.D. service charges, for that
shipment, now well over a month ago.

Luckily, I remembered that I paid all that by credit card, to the driver
at the door. When I phoned, UPS acknowledged that the charge was reported on
one system, and not on another. UPS computers don't talk to each other.

If I had simply assumed UPS was in some small way, competent, and I paid the
bill, I would be out another $85.

Surely, FEDEX can't be nearly as terrible.
Once again ... beware of using UPS, if at all possible.

Maybe it's time to demand the shipping charges be returned, for UPS gross

Actually, now that I think of it, when I complained to them that it took
"over a week" for my other 3 day shipment to arrive, a couple of weeks ago,
the UPS agent told me that UPS has an "unadvertised policy" of REFUNDING
shipping charges - but ... ONLY if a customer complains, and ONLY returns
the refund, to the SENDER.
Then you have to hassle them to get your money back, or the sender will keep
it, as a bonus.

It's not much, but maybe it at least it gets logged in somebody's career
advancement profile at UPS.

Maybe UPS needs to hire Tom Hanks away from FEDEX :-)
