Just a bit of trivia on this......a few years back, I sent a couple of expensive CDs to a good customer in Italy using EMS. He never got his package and then contacted me to tell me the tracking number indicates his package was sent to PERU!!! I checked online and, yes, instead of Italy, the package ended up in Peru. Well, needless to say, my good customer was in total panic and wanted his money returned. I assured him, the package would eventially get to him, that he had to be patient. Patience wasn't one of his virtues...., but he did restrain himself from filing a paypal grievance and.......yes, about 1 month or more later, his package did arrive. Once again, I am glad I mailed that out EMS with tracking. They were well travelled CDs to say the least.
