@CALI
No YAY for Greece?
500 or 501?

@ Cali
Thanks for helping us, this is much appreciated *hugs*

I called Ukrainian FedEx again in hope that maybe they would consider my documents proving I haven't paid that much, I told them they could easily get online and check that the Ticketmaster site from which I bought my Opus still has a price much lower than the limit for customs-free import.

Like hell they would.
They told me it's not their problem and I should get it straight with the sender.

Now, what's wrong with the sender, by the way? My waybill specifies the sender is Gary Yandle, Fedex SCS, and NOT Opus.

That means that we're calling Opus in vain because they'll probably divert us back to Fedex and say they are the ones responsible for making those waybills. That would be convenient.

I asked my local Fedex if they can send an inquiry to the sender to claim the package back and give me a refund. They said they tried - but got no response.

It means I'll have to pay the damned USD 150 customs fees to get it. Otherwise I'm losing my USD 193 I have initially paid for it.

I have to think fast because the local FedEx will start charging me for storage of the package starting from the 11th day of its being in the customs zone. There are only 6 days left, and after that I need to make a decision what to do.
The book will be, like, golden to me, if you understand what I mean.

To EVERYBODY who haven't recived the OPUS yet : CALL Kraken OPUS +44 (0)20 7213 9587 and ask for Andy, he will answer YOUR questions.

If you have recived a FEDEX tracking number and and you can see the bar stands on dilivered information to Fedex, but nothing happends, (It may take 2 weeks or more) before it moves to: In transit) CALL FEDEX.

Justice Rainger : That's allright hehe everybody can make a mistake, my name might be Russian, but I live in Denmark (Europe), don't worry about it :·)

Thanks MJcomMod!

To be clear, the issues containted below, are surrounding those customers who<strong> PRE-ordered through Opus or Ticketmaster beginning last August through December 1, </strong>with an expected delivery date of before Christmas. Furthermore, <strong>Ticketmaster was not responsible for the delivery portion of the sale,</strong> according to an executive with Opus on December 22/23.

Michael Jackson's Official site through Sony (here) only recently (Dec 15th or later) starting offering the purchase of the Opus directly. <strong>The comments below do not reflect Sony's delivery AT ALL.</strong> They did logically post a news thread in August, announcing the sale,which is why many have congregated here.

So buy away!

Hope that helps!

PS. Everyone else--made a new thread under the Opus Forum so we can chat there.... and leave the 2 topics above specifically for the issues they address.

Fed Ex just pulled up and WOW! I got my Opus. This book is VERY HUGE and HEAVY! Beautiful as I'm looking through it. Now some of you have commented that your Opus only came with one glove and no media card.The same goes for me. But what I will do on behalf of everybody is that I will call directly to Opus and I will let them know the situation. I will leave a post on the information that I've gathered tomorrow. I'm not upset cause I know this will be solved. The most important thing is that I got my book in pristine condition. My Christmas is complete. Yaaaaay!
