How long should one wait before deciding its a lost cause and begin asking for a refund?
There isn't a general timetable for your question, or someone on FM who has a definitive answer. Keep in mind that ordering from Hong Kong takes more time than here in the states. You sort of suspended a timely delivery when you bought gear overseas. There isn't a penalty for asking for a refund even if you might receive your item in the process. Customs hangups are common, but at least you know it was shipped.
