Help!
Hobbking Forward Expired

i placed an order on hobbyking 2 weeks ago ( placed 2 orders with them in the past to the same address )
check my tracking number today, my package status shown "Forward Expired" after some research Forward expired mean that my package is on its way back to China because my forwarding order was expired.
I haven't place any forwarding order with USPS ( i just received some mails from usps this morning too )

called Usps, they made me talk to two different people, both with the same result that i have placed a forwarding order and the order is expired ( BS )

they said that if i think they made a mistake, i have to contact the vendor that i buy it from and that vendor have to contact them to get the problem sort out.

i have been waiting on HK live chat for over 30 mins (Please wait while we connect you to our online rep... )

has anyone have this problem with usps ( or hobbyking ) before ?

update: I got my package, my mailman made another trip to deliver this package, i guess usps system got messed up.

How long have you been at your current address? Have you had any room mates move out?

There's so many stupid holes in usps's "forwarding order" system. Perhaps usps screwed-up addresses, or mismatched last name or attached you to someone else that moved in or moved out.

when I moved from my house in stockton to San Jose, I did a forward and did it as "individual" for both my wife and I.

Unfortunately, my tenants that moved in had the same last name as my wife, and the stupid forwarding kicked in . All my tenants mail was forwarded to my new address.

Repeated calls, visits to usps to no avail. I even went to their main office, nothing. I ended up waiting the full term till it expired. I had to drive up every week to just send their mail back to them. I got tired of driving and started stuffing all their mail and sending back to them by usps with a fictitious last name in order to get it to them.

finally able to speak to HK customer service, Ivy from hobbyking told me that there is a 39 days policy that stop them from doing anything with the order. I guess i will have to wait it out.
Hopefully it will get back to my hand before June 12.
