    Ask your source if he'll resend to a different address. Most will do it for half the cost and some reship for free.
    Just don't ever send anything to that address again.

    Do what MBaraso said. And don't stress about it too much, its just part of the game, happens to all of us at some point. Goes back to the rule of never sending out more money than you are willing to loose. Look on the bright side, at least they didn't do a controled delivery.....

    Well believe it or not, alot of UK gear is getting seized by US customs. It's like they are looking for it. I think know who you are talking about when you got to Wire to Thailand and it gets sent from UK. He is good to go, its ashamed its getting caught now.

    I still dont see why people are going international for gear. Too many quality domestics available to go intl. I rather pay a lil more and get my packs. Its true Bulldog, at least you didnt get a controlled delivery, which is always possible. STay safe....B

    What's a controlled delivery? Is that a charge?

    Controlled delievery is when the feds come knocking poseing as your normal postal worker and ask you to sign for the goods.
    You sign...Your busted.

    Even if you never open it. I had to sign once when GF was still around, it was for T3, I was nervous as hell but didn't open it for a week to make sure the coast was clear.

    a controlled delivery is when law enforcment intercepts your package of gear and personally delivers it to you while impersonating a mail rep (ie fed ex, usps, airborne express). once u accept the package they bust your ass for possession of the aas. Contingent upon the amount of gear you recieve they can charge with greater criminal offenses ie...distribution. **** those are two of the scariest words in the english language...CONTROLLED DELIVERY.

    Not to mention it was in a bag with a weed leaf on it. If they would of opened it I would of been ****ed. I emailed him telling him off about that ****. Talk about non-discreet shiping.

    okay here goes....lil tip on accepting packs....$hit this is my lil secret but im gonna share cuz i like all ya'll AR Bitches ) When you accept the pack, especially if its alot, immediately write Return to Sender on the pack and stick it either back on your porch or right inside your front door. NEVER open it immediately. I have waited as long as 5 days to open packs before...No lazy fed is gonna wait outside for five days. So when and if the cops do bum rush your house, u have an unopened box with Return to Sender or DNR (Does Not Reside) written on the box. Gives u a big defense. Ya'll stay safe.

    well ,the aswer to that will be ,if dont have a source in the us ,then i have no choice to go with another source ,specially in my case i have a very good source but he leaves in spain,i have made two big orders from him and have no problems receiving them,the only thing i see that i might help when get gear from europe if to get it shipped EMS between 4 to five days ,those pakeges have a very slim chance of getting cut ,becausse of the time period,just my opinion.

    I still don't see why people think everyone has as good of sources as them. Want to let us all know your sources. We'll be accepting your PM's on this for the rest of the evening. Don't leave anyone out.

    Yeah they can find a couple of ampules in the mail but can't spot an illegal job stealing criminal border jumping human being swimming across a river, hopping a fence, or hiding in a semi. Make me ****ing sick.

    **** you guys are killing me, its really not that hard. Other boards have classified sections, but you just gotta check the feedback and how long these guys have been in business in order not to be scammed. ALOT of really good domestic sources advertise openly on other board, AR is really conservative in their views, which im glad they are....B

    Yeah some boards are sponsered by sources. Makes me a little stand offish because if they support the board the mods on that board are gonna be biased IMO. So I just go with my trusted sources. Domestic or not.

    that does sound a bit worrying, been from the UK i am just not home when the package arrives, its taken back to the postal depo, i normally wait a few days and collect it, never had any problems
