Well so why was I surprised when I opened the insurance check from UPS for
a 150.00 item and it was 100.00 plus postage? After all, Eleanora's First
Law of Capitalist Dynamics is IF IT CAN HAPPEN IT WILL HAPPEN...so it was
patiently explained to me by a very polite and helpful ups receptionist
that even though I valued the package correctly the UPS didn't correctly
charge me and so since the package wasn't charged the extra fee the
valuation is only the maximum $100....well I'm pretty sure I can make them
cough up the dough but......
BE FOREWARNED: the extra valuation is charged separately and so if the
package has been declared at more than $100 there should be two charges
Now I feel better. Even if I get jerked around a bit extra by the old
system maybe I've saved somebody else this particular twist......
