I bought a camera, had it sent to my old address and they think it was stolen am I covered?

I bought a camera, a fujifilm finepix xp60 for $140 with free shipping via the USPS. I tracked the package and realized that online it

 

said that it was delivered, however I hadn't recieved it. After a frustrating day or two I called the post office and asked where my

 

package was. They said that they delivered it to my old address. Apparently ebay automatically sent it to my default address. I'm a

 

college student who moves around near the university. I rarely use ebay and forgot to update the shipping addresses. I asked the

 

new owners of my old house if they had received the package however, they told me that they think it was stolen because some

 

of their mail is missing as well. I have contacted and filed a report with the local police but I'm wondering if there is anything else I

 

can do or if I'm out $140 because I didn't update my address. Any advice would be appreciated as $140 is a lot for a college

 

student, especially around Christmas time. I have asked the seller if he has any advice, or if he can do anything but they say it's

 

out of their hands. I've had a heck of a time trying to navigate ebay's resolution center as well as finding a phone number to call.

 

I'd prefer the product (camera) over a refund, but don't know if I can get either. I like ebay and realize I should have double

 

checked the stupid address but was busy with work, school, etc. Thanks for the help and sorry for the long message.

If the package was sent to the address given the seller, there's nothing for you to do. EBay can't help you and PayPal can't help you. Sorry.

SO

You are upset with the Seller because they shipped the package to the address YOU supplied?

 

Opening an INR claim >> Item Not Received << Will be a waste of your time since you have already indicated the package was delivered to the address supplied by you

 

Call it a learning lesson >> $140.00 worth >> I am sure you pay more for less at your college / university

Lesson learned is to be sure the ship to address is where you want the package delivered


Delivery Confirmation is now called "Tracking"

BUT seems to still be Delivery Confirmation

Copy & Paste from USPS site >>

If you shipped with Express Mail®, you’ll get point-by-point tracking details. If you used another service—USPS Tracking™, Certified Mail™, Registered Mail™ —you’ll see when it went out for delivery.

Op went ahead and left the seller neutral feedback.

Thanks for posting, OP.

Well, at least it wasn't a neg. And, truthfully, that feedback makes the buyer look bad.

 

It's really too bad some people just refuse to take responsibility for their own mistakes.

He lied in the feedback, says package was stolen, not that he supplied the wrong address.

Still not taking any blame.
