Default International shipping taking Over a month!!!

Il keep it simple.

PZEROFGH3 ordered me parts from Newegg, hes from Boston. he ordered me Opty 165, Gskill DDR500 2GB and WIndows XP pro.
I payed him for the stuff via paypal. He sent the packages to me (northern ireland - UK) with UPS. he sent it on the 22nd of FEB, its now 28th march. He has insured it to $200.

1) do u think its lost.
2) How long should customs have it (Oh, he wrapped the items to look like gifts as a way to bi-pass customs)
3) If you have shipped internationally, how long did it take u.
4) i ordered parts from US via www.music123.com and it took 2 weeks.
5) i hope its not lost

it depends on how it is sent, I live in germany (in the us army) and air mail (usps priority) usually gets here in about two weeks. If it is sent standard ground shipping it is put onto a boat and shipped over here which can sometimes take over a month. So I would find out the shipping information. The item could be stuck in customs, all packages need to have a customs declaration saying what it is, even if it is gifts or not. I've had to pick up quite a few servers (for work) at the airport because they have gotten stuck in customs.

for the items, it should take around 3 weeks.

The largest item is XP Pro, as the memory and processor are tiny chips.

If you do not receive it within 2 weeks I think you are screwed.

If it's taken a month it's either lost or you got scammed
