Whatever coumtry you bought it from has sorted it to go into an ISC (International Shipping Container) bound for CITY OF COUNTRY SHIPPED TO.
That means (for example) your Samurai Sword shipped free from LonQuin, CHINA, is in a steel container on a slow boat from CHINA.

Talk about whining then what are you doing with your silly over the top font, you're whining about people looking for an answer!
Is your life so miserable that you have to camp out on the ebay forum taunting people? You don't even hardly use ebay feedback 57, posts on here 12700+ lol like i said miserable with no life!
Seems to me YOU need to camp out here a little more Often. Hidy is a very important part of the eBay community. He has helped Many Buyers and Sellers with problems. What's wrong with spending Your life helping eBay with their problems. Is that Not in and of itself a life? Sometimes You have to taunt a few people. If You had wrote 27,000. post You would taunt a few yourself!
Miserable? I think Not! I am sure he loves to write and express himself here and of course help everyone. I am sure he gets satisfaction from just that! I know Hidy is always there when I need a quick answer!
Of Course, You show a little bit of silliness Yourself. Like Most other phosters, Hidy Uses a POSTING ID>
He uses a posting ID so he can tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. No Poster who tells the truth Wants some crazy Fool to ruin His Selling account! Crazy people have been know to be so vindictive they go to any length to ruin a Sellers account!
Also, this is the PHART time Seller forum..We like to Pharty and Have fun! We actually have permission to be silly. So, Welcome to the Phart time Party Postings! Don't phart Your pants...laughing from some of the dry Jokes. Hey, this is one of the places I get MY giggles and laughs in for a while. Sometimes I laugh so hard I phee My Phants! Sugar!

I'm going through a similar situation. Did you ever receive your item? I live in the Pittsburgh area and just had a package make it to Warrendale only to be sent back to the ISC New York.

I'm dealing with the same delay, but in Chicago's ISC...
Almost $300 Ebay item from Australia.
09/21/2016 - Shipped
09/26/2016 - Left Australia
09/28/2016 - "Processed through facility" in ISC Chicago and "stuck" there.
10/07/2016 - still nothing 9 days later (10 days depending on how you count it)
I live a quick 4 hour drive from anywhere in Chicago, and USPS takes 2 days to get here from there.
I contacted USPS and they just basically told me the same thing that the tracking did... "It was last marked by ISC Chicago and we can't do anything until it clears customs. Could be 6 weeks." So clearly USPS has no way to communicate with ISC, or the lack of desire, or both.
After reading some other posts here and elsewhere, I am starting to think that I may never see my item (pinball machine decals, so nothing that should red flag it) as some have said that if it get stuck there for 10 days that it usually never leaves and is "lost."
The source for my item and ones similar all come from Australia. I could have dealt with someone in the US, but they have large mark-ups over the cost of getting one straight from the people that make them...
Oh well. I better keep the seller in the loop. It isn't his fault, although I wonder if, for the price I paid for international shipping, he could have shipped someone else besides regular Australian Post (which comes as USPS here obviously). UPS or FedEx would be all over this with ISC...

FBI or whoever is appropriate should audit and investigate the ISC NY and ISC Miami, cause these are serious issues of theft and corruption. This should be raised on the higher levels all the way to the WH. Or we will stop shipping to the US.

This is weird. Is the recipient in Chicago? What zip code? This should be investigated with a lawyer. Contact Postal Inspectors, just in case, although they may turn out useless feeders on taxpayer funds.

Corruption in USPS. They have huge salaries and are lazy and dumb, plus the number of theft is skyrocketing. US is becoming like South Africa where most inbound Registered mail is either broken into, robbed or stolen. One of the triggers is the US postal law issued in 2009 that allows USPS to treat inbound registered mail as regular mail (unsecured) and thus anyone can steal it. In addition to that registered mail charge is through the roof and nearing $20 now or more, while back in 1999 it was just $3.50. In Europe registered mail costs just 4€ to 5€ to send, even less than 4€. Greed at the USPS? They keep on saying they are operating at a loss while increasing charges to the outer space. USPS needs to go or change owners ASAP or we will have to stop shipping to the US.

By being impatient and filing a chargeback too soon (sooner than 3 to 6 months needed to investigate the shipment whereabouts) you not only "stole" the wallet from the merchant/sender (unless you paid them again, including their chargeback penalty), but also you must know that the seller gets a huge penalty by their merchant account provider for a chargeback. So for example if the wallet was worth $20 and you got your money back, which means the seller was out of the merchandise and out of $20 plus out of around $40 more or less in chargeback penalties. How would you feel if your employer charged you a huge penalty for being late, while you werre not actually late or while you were late due to an accident or a health issue? Remember, a lot of merchants operate on a hair thin income and every chargeback on a whim can cause them huge deal of trouble.
