DHL / package stolen

DHL IS THEFT!!! I shipped my Gibson Guitar via DHL on 12-04-2007. Their driver came to pick it up but the weird thing was he took my guitar and left nothing for me to track and left. I called their costumer service to find out where is the guitar. GUESS WHAT, THE DRIVER REPORTED that he DID NOT PICK UP ANYTHING!! could you believe that!?

Then I called everyday to their CS service, and their representative always says: Oh, there will be somebody call you back in an hour..." BUT NO ONE REALLY CALLED ME BACK!!

The most ridiculous part is everytime they would tell me without the "TRACKING NUMBER", they could not do anything about it. WTF, the driver just did NOT give me one!!

IS not it a simple logic problem?

Ok, then i still keep calling and emailing them. Someday, a guy named KEITH replied:

OK. good news isn't it?

THen i faxed my claim form to their claim department. No response AT ALL.

SO I call the claim department. Very funny,

they told me without the TRACKING NUMBER, they will just throw away my claim form.

WTF, then I explain this whole thing again.

But the guy is like a machine and repeating:"i am sorry, without a waybill number, theres nothing i can do. Please contact our costumer service".

I was so upset and i emailed to the KEITH guy who sent the claim form for me. I asked him to help me explain this issue to their claim department. here is what he replied:

    You sir are a ###ing idiot!
    I dont work for DHL, but I do work in the industry.
    Who gives a courier a shipment, without getting the signed courier waybill from the driver?
    I highly doubt your story, but if your story is true, you are too stupid to live alone in this world.
    I suggest you get medical help, or better yet, check yourself into a hospital for the mentaly ###ted.
    They will take good care of you there!
