you will have to prove the value. I went thru this with UPS. They would only give me my cost on the intakes, not the $$$ amt the customer paid. It was 3 brand new intakes.

I really had to think about this for a minute - you still have the original $200 - once Fedex pays you and you refund your customer all is good

fed ex from my experiences , you have about a 65% chance of receiving your package without some sort of hassle

he paid you $200.
Fed Ex gives you $200.
You have $400,You give $200 back to the guy.

Net You have $200.
Net He is back to $0 but without a manifold.

He paid you 200 bucks, you put that 200 in your pocket, Fedex lost it and sent you 200, you send the 200 fed ex sent you to the guy. You still have the 200 the guy sent you in your pocket, Fedex lost it so he did not receive itl the 200 from fed ex makes the guy whole because he did not receive, You still have his original 200 in your pocket.
