    Tell your buyer to pop into the nearest Auspost branch & to see if it has been dropped off there. I've had this happen to me recently.

    IF one were to plan thefts from a very tight system, like A.Post for instance, with a strong tracking system and very few opportunities, then perhaps, one could "misplace" a suspiciously valuable looking item, keeping it on hand in an "out of the chain of custody", location, just in case it was tracked to your station, where it could, if needed, magically re-enter the system, proving your innocence.

    But if the sender gave up, or interest was lost, then after a month or two, when tracking was not in the picture it could be "posted" to a location of your convenience.

    IF, that is....

    Australians will have to wait longer for their mail as delivery services are relaxed for Australia Post to help it handle “unprecedented” demand during the coronavirus crisis.

    Postal deliveries in metropolitan areas will occur every second day instead of daily, as part of a range of changes to mail services

    The federal government has granted Australia Post approval to change parcels and letters processes because of the coronavirus restrictions.

    The required time to deliver letters within a state will also be extended to five days after the day of posting.

    To reflect the shift in volume from letters to parcels, Australia Post will retrain 2000 motorbike posties.

    The posties will help deliver and process the increasing number of parcels being sent because of the boom in online shopping from people stuck at home

    Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said the measures were necessary because of the COVD-19 disruption. The changes will apply until June 30 next year, subject to review.

    Just received an update regarding this package;
    "Aus post are pleased to advised we have secured sea transport for your parcel. Delivery is expected to be made in the next 30 to 60 days"

    I had honestly thought it would have been lost by now!
