FedEx-- anyone ever shipped something and then recalled it?

Just musing here . . . if one were to send an item, and then not receive payment for it once the buyer was notified that it had shipped, could one hold or recall the shipment?

I did that once, sent a 70lb, $3500 item across the country. Same day the item shipped, Paypal freezes the buyers account. I call Fed-Ex, they say they can recall the package and return the shipment to the sender.

The next day the package was delivered to the buyer.

Of course on an item like this, I spoke to the buyer and based on his knowledge about the item and similar areas, I was not concerned. I spoke to the buyer about his Paypal account, he was locked out as well, had no idea why. He received the item, liked the item, had no problems and after 30 days Paypal released my money. No explanation.

That was the week I stopped using Paypal for anything more then small amounts.

It's typically doable with Air shipments... but much harder for the carriers to accomplish when it is a ground shipment unless it's not gotten to center -before- it goes to the local hub that puts in on truck to the final address. 2nd day/overnight air shipments been able to stop even after they've been on the truck out for delivery in some rare cases over the years where need existed. Out the freight - but not out the goods when fraud involved.
