stupidly enough i sent £20 cash by post recorded to someone, however he wasnt in when the postman called and back it went to the sorting place. This was the 26/11 its now 18/12 and it is nowhere to be seen and i swear i put my addy on it.
Now the problem i can put a claim in but not for cash or jewellery?? to the value of 100 times the postage costs i think... i
Am i fooked or what can i do??
thanks

Youll have to say it was something else other than cash or jewellery, its the only way around it.

Since it was first class recorded, you can claim £32 back.
#2
Thanks for the prompt reply, but what can i say it was??
Just got no idea??
#3
there you go, youve made £12 lol
#4
Just say it was a mobile worth about £40, hhmmm the weight isnt on the recorded delivery slip is it?
#5
You could say it was a party invite.
Just think of something along the lines of Paper!
Hope you get it sorted! :thumbsup:

Say it was a radley purse, there about £30 :)

Make sure you get the full amount though since theyve lost it :)

If you sent via recorded Sab, you *have* to add your address on there, cos part of the recorded form has a space for it; either you, or post office counter staff should have done this, or, if from a business it's a bit more complex but either way, it should have a return addy on there, i do, even if it's just a simple letter.

Can you not claim for *gift vouchers*?

Saxo and joshanna, rep given where deserved!!

SD card from shops are fairly expensive anyway...so a 1gb will suffice!!
