This is the first book I sent with PBS electronic postage and DC - DC said it was delivered on the 4th so I PMed the sender, she said she hasn't received it. I looked closer at the DC info and this is what I found:

Sooo this book that was supposed to go to West Virginia was delivered to Alabama!
Did anyone else have anything like this happen with PBS postage?

Sounds like a PO screw up. Jessie, follow these instructions for Lost Book. They are also used for a misdelivered book.
I would also re-print the wrapper (you will not be charged again) so you have proof of where it was addressed to match with the DC number.
If a book you sent is declared Lost in the Mail at PBS:

I'm not able to print out the label again, but I was able to see all the tracking info/address/dates when I clicked on details.
I went and filled out info on that theft form
I had this happen, too -- a DC book coming to me was delivered clear across the state. I had to call PO Customer Service, then they told me who to call at the other PO, and then we sorted it out from there....
Jessie- I've been having problems with the new DC.... mine rarely gets recorded in the system... in fact some numbers say that it is not a USPS dc# at all.... so maybe there was a screw up in the DC number given to you.. and the package with that real DC is supposed to be in AL...
ETA; here's an example: Label/Receipt Number: 9102 1655 6135 3000 0513 91 No information is available for this item. Please contact the sender.
Package was delivered on 10/17...... PBS site says "info received in Lititz on 10.17" USPS says no information available, yet it was delivered.....

They have been having problems with the DC lately. Many of my swap books have arrived and never been scanned. Supposedly it has been corrected according to a thread regarding DC problems in the UPS forum.
I have one right now that finally got posted after being sent on the 12th. The DC finally became available here and it states it was mailed the 12th, delivered the 15th (to Utah, in three days, I don't think so), and my post office in OH received confirmation on the 18th. I am anxiously awaiting if the swap person received the book yet or not.
