    I've never ordered anything pricey on AliExpress ... just some silly things the kids want.

    Glad you got your stuff.

    The pandemic has had a twofold effect on online shopping. People began to prefer shopping online instead of going out. It has been in the news that delivery services broke all records during the lockdown. And at the same time, international delivery has been hit very hard. Packages spent a very long time in warehouses and sorting centers, so they were sometimes lost there. Or customers would open a dispute because the goods didn't arrive in the specified time. I personally got my packages around three months after I ordered them. Generally, I use Aliexpress to buy cheap stuff. For significant things I use other stores. In addition, the delivery is better there, with speedpak tracking I always get my parcels on time.

    Yeah, it looks like they’re parking container ships further and further down the coast from the port of Los Angeles. This morning, I saw a few sitting right off the coast from Laguna Beach. :eek:

    I have never bought from over seas sellers. Don’t see any good reason to do so. Plenty of US sellers to buy from, faster shipping and far more reliable.

    This is a weird first post. You didn't comment on anything else, Google has very few results when I search for that link. Reported.

    I can’t tell if they’re very sophisticated bots, or workers in a mega phishing centre but they crop up in this forum a surprising amount. Always vaguely trying to address the topic at hand a before very quickly steering to some sort of solution with an external link. lol

    I'd cancel order. If they don't respond -open a dispute with cc company.

    Sounds like maybe Ali Baba & the Forty Thieves, but maybe not.

    My advice: Send them a Text which says " Fu*k Off, Rude letter to Follow " :):):)

    The delays are intentional. The ports have been backed up, and under California law no trucks over 3 years old can enter the port because of emissions legislation. So that eliminates half of the available trucks in California. They are actively trying to tank the economy, and aren't even trying to hide it anymore.
