i had my worker ship a package to the philippines from bakersfield california... my employer made a mistake and sent a lot of stuff that was not supposed to be there.
it ended up 52lbs when it should have been 7lbs. ups charged $500 for the shipment. we called and cancelled the shipment within 3 hours of drop off and had the package pulled in bakersfield.. the truckers sent it forward to ontario california though before we could stop it.
it was sent back to bakersfield and ups refuses to discount the cost at all. the cost is still $500.
