    • Went investigating today and went to where the parcel was delivered and spoke to the guy (business address).  The package he received had all his details on there including his personal name, business name and telephone number.  It was not a package he was expecting and he thought nothing of it as he does receive promo stuff and gifts from time to time although this one was a bit strange as it came from Germany. I explained what the confusion was and showed him a pic of my parcel which clearly showed my tracking label and the tracking event which I'd printed out for it.  We know the parcel contained a small clock so asked if it looked tampered with.  New shipping address stuck on etc.  He said it looked legit and didn't look like anything had been stuck on except it had his address on there and the sender was now a Gerhard Smidt or something very similar. I see 2 possibilities.  The tracking label was removed and placed onto a new shipping label either on this box or another.  The other possibility is the addresses were removed and replaced.  Dios printed out the addresses and then cut them out and stuck them onto the label onto the corresponding fields/lines.  Depending on how sticky the tape was and whether a heat gun was used, the stuck on paper could have been removed and then new addresses written on.  I suspect it's the latter. Unfortunately we no longer have access to the parcel and is being returned to sender by UK Mail to a presumably fake address or one just plucked from somewhere otherwise I could have inspected it myself. With Sal having had the same issue I'm 100% confident that the tampering has happened in Germany.  @Frenchie I suspect your parcel has received a similar treatment to ours where it has been delivered but to a new addressee and the contents stolen and replaced.  I only managed to track mine down because the parcel was handed over to a courier where full delivery details are entered onto a computer and the courier staff were helpful. The big question is whether it's just happening to parcels from Dios or if it's happening elsewhere as well and at which point is the tampering going on.
    • That makes me feel better.  Even if I had been more on the ball I still would not have got one.
    • My order was midday and still got cancelled by the Mint when there was supposedly stock after 4pm
    • Ooh, they've been punched out. Yes that looks much better than my bumbling attempts at drilling:  
    • I have - but I was probably one of the last to order; just before someone said there were only 4 left.
