Amazon Return - Item is missing from the box

Posted 3rd Aug 2020Edited by:"Harrods"
Hi All,

I returned one portable SSD drive to Amazon using THEIR QR code/Royal Mail prepaid returns label. 2 weeks after it was returned to the warehouse (according to the tracking) I received this email

Note - no history of 'repeated problems with returns on your account' as I only ever returned one other item and that was received and processed with no issues...

I've responded to the email with proof of posting which has the package weight and no response for over a week.

Reached out to regular customer service but the response is pretty much the same....please get in touch with courier, goodbye. Surely they should get in touch with their appointed contractor, not the customer...

Not really sure what to do here, I always almost return items in store when possible, to avoid issues like this - is there an executive email I can reach out to?
