Looks like these problems are global and many people are loosing AliExpress packages all over the world. One of my packages with 60 day buyer protection is now over 100 days due, dispute is open but AliExpress is doing nothing to process it and refund me. I also heard that they have closed accounts of people who have opened disputes. Have you had any luck with your disputes lately?
I'm having the same issues. Purchased under a 60 day guarantee and its been 80 days and they refuse to give me a refund. I've filed a BBB complaint.
I have waited 97 days with no refund for 60 day buyer protection order.
