I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

A tracking number showing it was signed won't do either, since they sign for the whole pallet at once. Without checking the content.

But i believe this issue is not unique to USA.
Correct.

So what kind of proof do you want from the buyer? What's stopping a buying group from claiming every 100th package wasn't delivered? Also once a package is signed for, as far as I know, it is almost impossible to dispute it with the credit card company.

Of course, why would you be able to dispute it? It was delivered, after all. But the buying group has no case, and you should fight and publicize this story until you get your money, and then some. Though I’d want to hear their perspective too.

Have you never had a package that was never delivered to your house even though the delivery company claims it was - USPS does that all the time

Signature ain't worth much if they don't verify the content.

But is a dispute winnable? Of course not.

Anyone here using YRCW group?
Yes they’re solid. Not as many deals as other groups. Found them honest and helpful through a few issues I’ve had. Sometimes slow to receive but always quick to pay (via ACH which I love).

If you sign a contract without reading it, it's still binding.

they do this at my job quite frequently.(PISSED ME OFF AND I REPORTED TO CORPORATE). FEDEX drivers constantly quitting every 3 month. I've found UPS drivers more stable.

I have had Fedex lie that a package was signed for.

I did successfully dispute the credit card charge even though it was "signed for".

USA refusing to pay for packages that were "never delivered". Of course they didn't lose it when it was delivered 4 weeks ago.... What a bunch of scammers.
I had an issue. i had to follow up a few times but got a PO yesterday. I showed them proof of delivery, signature and what was in the order.

Getting back to the PS Classic fiasco: Has anyone here who sent a return label to USA actually had their item returned yet?

Getting back to the PS Classic fiasco: Has anyone here who sent a return label to USA actually had their item returned yet?
I know you're asking about USA, but I'll give my data points on MYS.

I had 2 amazon orders of 1 each @$99 (that had been processed/paid out already) and 3 orders of 3 each @$75 that were not checked in yet by the time this whole thing blew up. I also had 1 at Gamestop that was already processed, but they decided to eat the loss there. At their direction, I printed return labels for all 5 amazon orders. Then they said they can only handle the checked in orders. They deducted the payment for those around 10 days ago, crediting back $5 for each item and the shipping charge I reported as well. Of those 2, only one has actually been shipped back - the other they guaranteed they'll send out by the end of today. The wait was not ideal - not including the time the money was technically in my account until it was debited again, I'm essentially floating the money for the orders for a full month. Seems like it'll work itself out in the end though, and with the initial commission plus the return bonus it was still worthwhile.

When I asked about the other orders, they said they're sending them back without opening them, and have already done so for 2 of the 3 (which were UPS). Unfortunately, there were other items in the 2 orders they returned, and they didn't bother asking for details before sending them back. Hopefully I get a full refund from Amazon for everything in each package - if not obviously I'm taking it up with MYS again.

I definitely understand the desire to refuse to accept the sealed packages (so as to save on return shipping), but I think it was done a little sloppily. They probably should have checked with the buyers for each package to see what was in each one first and make sure the buyer agrees.
