UPS - Image screenshot


In addition to what I mentioned in the previous posting, a lot of suspicious activity seems to be going on with this (is UPS pretending it's attempting to ship this back just to keep their numbers going, and to not be accountable since they messed up by claiming it exceeded the 150 lb limit?)

UPS has a culture of non-accountability when it comes to damage and attempts to deliver.

I put notation suggesting that a "USP" delivery text message smishing attempt received immediately after purchasing the item was somehow faking a tracking number in order to fraudulently manipulate the shipping service?

If the shipper doesn't just send an empty package or envelope with a tracking number, they also have a way to manipulate the automation on Ebay or UPS's end, where people aren't able to refute the claim it was delivered, since no details can be easily revealed unless you log into the legit tracking service.

I was trying to be diligent and document irregularities so that way I would be protected when making a claim, and the seller attempted to claim I needed to retract the return in order to not make Ebay automatically refund me the shipment (which only works if an actual return was authorized and shows accepted, which incidentally shows on their end as being in California, so as to why it documented received at my address in Dallas, TX right after this showed as 'Driver Release' it seems as if UPS is constantly updating while also making very odd additional notations that seem to show up as glitches in the system.

Since the seller seems less than trustworthy, I highly suspect that any negative feedback they receive get's argued against with the apparent "proof" of delivery, so unless someone does a neutral feedback, it's difficult to get a legitimate interpretation of how ethical they are.

I offered to accept the shipment considering I doubt that the actual damage inspection that was scheduled had actually went through, and the package I was intended to receive could not possibly have arrived within 14 hours if it was intended to be delivered, so I figured I would offer the seller to return the replacement before it ships out here, and comp $70 for the damage (which I photographed and added to the claim report.)

4PX tracking and 4PX Express warehouses operate very sketchy, or the UPS truck delivery was just trying to keep their numbers looking like they didn't screw up in transit, so they manually typed in what was on the manifest for followup. The package itself was also completely inadequate and evidently fell apart, and whoever taped it clearly struggled to return it back into the box, so I suspect UPS wasn't claiming they damaged it and refused to accept to compensate the company (so it was perhaps a last-ditch effort to skirt the blame onto me as recipient?

Here is a scary visual of the shipping dock fully open at that warehouse, where literally anyone could grab from it and drive off, and the packages are scattered all over.

I should also mention that the seller specifically mentioned, "returns not allowed" so I suspect this was their convenient way to dodge accountability if they could get away with it?

The Trans Rush sign on that building can be found to the left and right of 4PX, so it must be connected to the 4PX service, and is listed as permanently closed, and the warehouse return delivery attempts specifically says they refused delivery when evidently they didn't have one if it's still being shown as attempted pickup or whatever is messed up in the system, but they might have redirected the package back saying, 'Look, it says Online Seller!'
5582 Grace Pl, Commerce, CA 90022

My guess is such a large shipping service as 4PX might have multiple channel partners who claim they are the authentic brand and seller, and are just creating new fly by night operations that can game the system long enough, with zero accountability. Maybe some of the sellers go out of their way to maintain a good reputation whereas others with less reputation get to funnel tracking info and other stuff, to profit on fraudulantly claimed deliveries (so unless they specifically spent $600 on something and posted as a neutral comment, you wouldn't know they were doing that, and if it was posted as a negative they could refute it on Ebay and have that mention get removed. . .

These comments are reflecting my same sentiments (these are fraudulent sellers. Even the information I found online was changed when I pointed out on the claims information, that they were shipping from this warehouse, and previously it showed as a place located near a mall in Tokyo.

They're having a swap meet near me so I've been deciding what to bring. I've been struggling with some of my stuff. For example, how nice does an ashtray have to be for an anti-smoking guy to not throw it away? I have an old carved stone one shaped like Italy that I'll keep for now. I have a nice wavy glass one that I think I'll throw out. But I'm not sure. I threw away my wall mounted plastic candle holders because they're unsafe. And I threw away a heavy glass or crystal liquor/wine decanter because I don't want people saying "we have such a nice decanter, we should use it" then one of their guests drives drunk and kills people. I'll give away a smoke detector that my building doesn't permit any more, I think. I'll give away two wall decorations. They're Chinese coin replicas that I thing are suppose to be good luck. I'll probably throw out two little decorative pictures and a mirror with a makeshift hanger that I could see failing. I threw out a partially cracked wooden box. This all requires much more decision making than I wanted to spend time on.

I know New Zealanders, but notice South Africans are also similar (and probably English Commonwealth countries in general.) America might be far worse.

It looks like on desktops, Facebook messenger is built into Facebook, but on Android it requires a separate app that needs your Facebook login info. I'm afraid to install it. I didn't check whether it's published by Facebook (I wanted to install the lite version) but I don't think I need it badly enough. I wish cell phones used desktop OSs.

On a local "free stuff" message board, someone offered tubes of prescription Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel. It got six thumbs up and a bunch of positive comments. I was the only one who gave it a wow. "It works great...it helps my knees..." It also hurts your baby if you're pregnant! I didn't read the full list of warnings (which weren't posted by the giver), but it's by prescription only!

People need to look at something other than an email address if they want your name! I guess I have to change my email address to [name]some-string-of-characters-that-have-nothing-to-do-with-me. But sometimes I don't even want my first name known! I should just make my email address gfqe4horih@gmail.com. Let people try calling me that!
