Call him and tell him it was supposed to arrive in MAD on the 30th of October. Obviously the flightnumber is right, so he should send it back to europe.

Ah, I knew I left it somewhere. Thanks for posting!

If you want your reward please forward me your Electronic Banking information so I can wire the 5% reward to you. I would need a payment of GBP 1000,00 in my account to verify yours.

Once again: thank you so much!

Since the box is worth USD 5 316 000, and it costs a mere USD 10 per day storage, no hurry to pick it up. They should be happy that they can recover their costs of storage, even if you take a year or 100 to let them know you won't be collecting.

Please play along and post the results here. Lets come up the first response to send Mr John Everest. How about asking for his bank details, so you can pay him the $10 daily charge?
