All the effort I went through to back up my photos may have been for naught. I took everything to a FedEx/Kinkos store in Sydney to send it back to the US. So far, the package hasn’t been entered into the FedEx system to track packages, and there hasn’t been a charge to my credit card. To the best of my knowledge, no phone calls have been made, no emails have been sent to notify me of a problem. Nor has the package been delivered.
This is highly unusual for FedEx, considering I was told it would be in the system the afternoon I sent it out. The only thing I can think of at this point is that the contents were opened and stolen at the store before it was ever picked up.
Which means that every photo I’ve spend the last year taking has been lost. Gone.
I used FedEx instead of the post office precisely because I could track the package and I have never heard of something like this happening.
I’ve contacted FedEx via thier website, but I don’t know what else to do.
