It was singularly the most common country were posted items would go "missing". I'm talking about sending things to around 60+ countries including eastern Europe, caribbean as well as main European countries. (I'm in the UK)

Discussion on eBay forums confirmed that many others had issues with Italy. Either they have the worst internation receiving postal service in the world, or those items were being pilfered.

I was totally unsurprised to read the headline story here and discover it had occurred in Italy.
