Have you ever had an ebay seller swear to you that your auction win is in the mail?
Imagine if that purchase was for a $60, 000 super rare Pokemon card.
It seems clear that both buyer and seller have done nothing wrong, have been sensible throughout and have just been horribly unlucky.
The card was sent from America and to an international destination. It was sent signed for, and it was insured. The maximum insurance value that allowed is $50,000.
Tracking shows that within the US it was forwarded to the Global Shipping Program centre in New York City. There’s no further record of it.
The card is a “Trainer No 3.” It was given of the third-place finishers in “Super Secret Battle” in Japan that happened in 1999.
The story is being shared by smpratte. He thinks the card has been stolen. If you know otherwise then it’s worth getting in touch with smpratte because there’s a bounty of $1,000 on information that helps locate the card. There’s also the legal action and the private investigation they’ve started. You won’t be able to sell the card.
What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever lost to the dreaded mail system?
