Package stolen before I got home, what happens next?

Hey guys, newbie here. i've browsed the site for a while as a guest but a recent event made me decide to finally join as i'm looking for some feedback.

i recently purchased a neumann tlm 103 from walmart & it never arrived. it turns out, the package was taken off my porch.

i'm waiting on my refund to be processed so i didn't really lose the $$$ but i can't help but think, some lucky moron will be able to go and sell the microphone for an easy come up. is there anything i can do? what's stopping the person from simply taking the mic to a trade in shop/pawn shop & selling it for cash?? i believe sam ash & guitar center buys gear as well, will they be able to do anything?

Lol I'm not entirely sure how it works but i think it's like they sell them for a 3rd party company

Sorry to hear that... You could let your local shops know to keep an eye out for it; also check Craigslist. I require signatures on delivery when purchasing high ticket items. UPS has been great with that, FedEx has not always followed through and simply left packages requiring a signature.

I deliver to my work, never my home unless I know I'm going to be there.

Nothing you can do, however. I don't know if Neumann registers the serial number on orders either; likely not.

Sorry to hear this.

If the seller had noted the serial number, you can get that and inform the Sennheiser/Neumann agent in your country that this is stolen - and, if it ever needsa service, it will be picked up.

But, do you need a refund? Why not get them to deliver a replacement?

I've since changed my mind. A close friend has the TLM102 and we used it yesterday, I fell in love with it so I'll be going to pick up one of those from my local guitar center.

Aah - yes - quite a few people seem to prefer the 102 over the 103.

No advice here. I just wanted to say I'm sorry this happened to you. I'd be so pissed, even if I got my money back.
