here is the situation. 3 weeks ago, i sold my 3 chrome wheels to a guy named mike scofield. i shipped them c.o.d. and had insurance on them. my local service center told me to ship the wheels as follows: fill out one(1) c.o.d. form with the total of the c.o.d. ($475) and put that form on one of the three boxes. then label each box, '1 of 3', '2 of 3' and '3 of 3'. so i did.
today i received one of the packages(a wheel) that was returned to me because the receiver(mike) did not have the funds available-the wheel that had the c.o.d. form on it- . the only problem is that ups delivered the other two packages because they did not have a seperate c.o.d. label on them. so mike has my two wheels and i have no money. ups says that i was misinformed about how i sent the c.o.d.(they say that i should have had a seperate cod label on each package). what can i do?
ps. i'm not implying that mike won't make things right with me(because i have not heard is side yet), i just want to know what to do.
what makes me nervous is that i tried to get mike's phone # from info and there is no mike scofield listed at the address he gave me?

When you put 1of3 etc. on the boxes, you only needed to fill in one form. The labeling defined a "set" and that set was accepted as such by UPS. I had a similar problem this summer but on the receiving end. Only 3 wheels out of a set showed up. UPS took 5 months but eventually cut me a check for $1000, the insured value of the complete set.

Ask to speak to a supervisor and let them know you will take them to small claims court if they don't make things right.
