At a guess i'd say contact your local UPS depot and quote your postcode. they should be able to identify any parcels in the warehouse from that.

It'll probably be sat down your local sorting office.
Give them a call to see if it's there.

They don't send via UPS, only USPS which is then delivered by Royal mail

When i get things from abroad it usually comes via Parcel Farce. If you have a local depot, just go along with proof of your address and the tracking number. They should be able to sort you out. At least its been ok for me in the past!

According to the USPS tracking number parcels always show up as attempted delivery when they hit customs. Expect to receive a card requesting pickup or a delivery soon. They might want to have proof of purchase too (ebay printout or whatever) so they can work out the tax. You're going to get stung for VAT and whatever import duty they see fit most likely...

Let us know how it turns out...

In future Ask the seller to class the item as a Personal gift with a value of less than $18 and you will not get charged!

My missus got stung ny customs ordering a special monopoly set off fleebay which with customs charges came to just unfer 50 quid!

I got some bits from america and they delivered it THEN sent the letter for payment of £45. Rang them, refused to pay or i would have rejected it if they sent the letter first so they said don't worry about it then

Sounds fun, although i did say they could have it back if thats a problem. I wasn't prepared to pay £45 in tax so i would of had a choice to decline it, their fault not mine. We shall see.... O and they would be knocking on the door of my workplace lol.
Failing that ill employ Wraggy for the day.
