    Despite the fact that I settled the payment for the auctioned items to date, I did not receive the parcel ????

    I am asking for a prompt shipment or refund of money to my account.

    Dear Bart,

    I’m sorry you didn’t receive the package yet. I don’t know yet what went wrong. In the track and trace-service it looks like the package was send back to Holland. I’ve contected PostNL and they don’t know what the reason is why it came back. They are trying to find the package now. I have to fill in a form now with your adress information.
    The only thing I need from you extra is your phone number (it is an obligated field). Could you send that to me?
    Don’t worry, you will receive the package and in worst case scenario you’ll receive your money back.
    I hope PostNL will figure it out very soon.

    Kind regards,

    Danut Dumitru
