A friend of mine recently shipped a PS3 and ended up getting scammed. The PS3 was insured for over $500, and FedEx states that it requires a signature for anything delivered with insurance over that amount.
However, the signature was waived by the guy who received the PS3, which he would normally be able to do had the PS3 not been insured for its full amount.
Is there any recourse he can take against FedEx?
With or without the signature, he paid FedEx to DELIVER the PS3, not make sure the person he shipped it to would pay for it. The insurance is really only going to benefit the person who received, and when he waived the signature, he waived his right to make an insurance claim. My take is he is SOL. (
Although he could argue it was delivered to the wrong person, and therefore this would be FedEx's liability. I don't know....I would let $500 go w/out a fight though.
^ You mean wouldn't let $500 go?
Anyways, I don't think he would get anywhere trying...
Damn. Ok, thanks for the advice, peeps.
why not find the local cops and call them. ur friend has this guys address rite?
take him to small claims court. he has documentation that the guy waived the insurance signature but it was delivered.

Exactly, that would probably work.
