Default UPS lost my package, what do I tell them is inside?

So UPS managed to lose one of my RIS shipments, so now they have to start a formal trace. They need to know the contents of the package (which I listed as collectibles), do I tell them that it's beer? Should I tell them something different?

Ugh. Man I dunno what to tell you. In all likelihood if you tell them the truth, they may or may not give you a hard time. I'd tell them it's bottled samples of live yeast

It's a bottled beverage and that sucks for me.

Yup, it is yours ollllo. If I tell them it's beer, they might tell me to pound sand. If I tell them it's something else, and it gets opened, it could be worse. Should I just forget it and ship another package? I wish I didn't say collectibles on the original shipping order.

I always tell them "hobby and craft" items. That's exactly what they are IMO.

I did say collectibles on the invoice. I'm just worried that if it gets opened up, they're gonna cry foul.

You have that risk no matter what.

Deny everything.

So go with the collectibles route and hope they don't open it?
