That’s a bit odd.
Is the seller using some sort of third party packaging/shipping service?

Does the package have your address on it? Could it have been shipped to someone else from a different seller and somehow landed in your mailbox?

Yup, my address, handwritten by her....and she acknowledged after I sent her a pic.

I'd find out what meds she is on and try to get some!! I don't sell a lot on ebay, but I did once send wrong packages to wrong people and paid return postage so I could get them to the proper buyers. Once put wrong item in box too, but buyer actually like the wrong item and kept it and gave me good feedback. Regarding mistakes, and old friend of mine would always say "that's why they put erasers on pencils" every time he screwed up. I guess you may have to have ebay give her a nudge to get your proper item.

The big question is who did she send the knives to and can she get them back.

If you can untie this knot you may solve half the problem.

You will need a knot knife to solve the other half and you have not got your knives yet. ::woot:: :mrgreen:

Scott does it look like the package was re-taped? Is it possible that someone may have swiped your knives and replaced them with random watch parts? I know, that's a little far-fetched, but nowadays you never know. Really strange.

Indeed it does. I asked her if she taped it, of course she didn't reply. I always tape mine because it is so easy to pull down a side flap
on a small flat rate box and push it back in.....here's a pic of the mangled end and tape...

Could be, but she's never seen the watch parts before....has no idea how they got into my box.

If she’s telling the truth and is not confused about what that should be..........

Then, you’ve been robbed and most likely by a postal employee.......

Unless, of course, two flat rate boxes fell apart simultaneously and spilled their contents at the feet of an exemplary postal service employee,who endeavored to reinsert the contents, but simply got it wrong.

Could happen.....

Scott, by any chance did the return address broadcast what was inside the package? That's something that I'm always paranoid about even though I've never had anything stolen that way.

When I get a package that has "John Doe's Knife Shop" on the return address I'm always glad that I actually received the knives.
