Sorry to read about your negative experience. If the HD was shipped from the States, it would have had to have been sent using a Customs Form - Customs Declaration CN22 I'm not sure if there are more recent form numbers, but the one that I have in front of me is PS Form 2976
I'm sure that you have the shipping address for Chef8489 (As well as his real name.). What you can do is to contact the United States Post Office that serves his area, as the Customs Forms are kept on file at the Post Office where the item was shipped for 30 days.
I know that it's not much to go on, but it's worth a try. If you can act upon it immediately, and that the 30 days has not already expired, you'll at least know if your HD was indeed shipped, or not. Good luck!
