| p.1 #12 · Tamron lens stolen after repair service: legal advice |
I believe that it would be trespassing and theft, not burglary. I would not have called the Police either. They would just right a report that you claim that something was taken, but there would be no evidence of a crime. You could have it in your closet. No B&E, or anything.
I agree with the letter from an attorney, or file in small claims court. It usually doesn't cost more than about a $100 to file in court, and I believe you can collect fees. They may want to settle, and I would make my fees and time part of the settlement. If they don't show up to court, you will get a judgement. The court isn't your collections service, but you would at least have a court order.
When the sender "chooses" not to insure a package, or get a receipt of delivery, then the responsibility for the loss is their burden. It makes absolutely no sense that you would have to just suck it up and say, "Oh well".
Good luck, and keep us posted.
