Hey I am in doubt of the delivery confirmation that I have been paying for is really working......

I mailed a book ... but put the wrong cover on it.... so it went to Ill. instead of Texas.  I checked the delivery confirmation and it said it was in Texas already....     What was up with that??  This was not the only time things have moved before it was mailed or received before it was accually received...

So what do you think?  Is it worth paying for something that doesn't seem to be telling the accual where abouts of the books?

If you put the wrong wrapper on it, then when the package is scanned, it is scanning the code that's "attached" to whichever book was supposed to be in that wrapper.  It doesn't know you switched the books.  It thinks your Illinois book is in the Illinois wrapper and your Texas book is in the Texas wrapper.

Also, if your book goes lost, DC guarantees your credit.

By the way, the little truck is just a guess as to where the package might be.  Don't go by that... go by the actual scans.
