quick question....is it ok to check your tracking # (via internet) on a shipment a few times a day? some have said it raises red flags and others say no big deal....wondering if anyone has any opinions on this, Thnx

No big deal. I do it sometimes but really no reason to check more than twice a day but still no big deal..

I wouldn't be looking at tracking numbers unless the package was late in arriving. The less footprints the better

there are far toooo many tracking numbers for them to take notice of.

Well here is the issue, if you do track your paks I reccomend you do this someplace else other than your home.
When you track a pak the IP (remember IP addys can be tracked to the exact longitude and lattitude) is logged, so lets say the pak happens to get opened and you have it going to a PO box, if someone has tracked it 100 times from the same location (this will be linked to the tracking number), they have a pretty good idea who the pak belongs to...Especially if you are ordering a sizeable quanitity.
You dont have to worry about red flags from trackning too much, like someone else said, there is just too many, but if your pak gets pinched. diff story.
Solution: Use a high anonymity proxy server when tracking a pak from your home, this will then show the IP of the proxy server linked to the tracking number. This is a precaution I always take when tracking packs or WU transfers. (even while surfing certain boards that I consider "hot")
Just adds another level of security. You never know whos source is being watched by who.
If anyone would like more info about proxy servers and how to use them, give me a PM.

i may be a bit paranoid about it lol but perhaps postal inspectors have ways of of being notified if a certain tracking # is queried online more than a set number (via a cpu program). Just covering my ass...good info guys, i appreciate it
