    Should my friend say something to his source about......

    A friend of mine order some stuff from a new source and when he got it, it was in a fold up USPS priority mail box that was just taped in a couple of places with scotch tape. It looked like the box had been partially opened or could have easily been if it wasn’t. He barely pulled on flap and tape came right off. Should he say something to his source or would it look more suspicious if it was all taped up really good?

    you could always send him a email and just state FYI the tape is loosening while in transit just letting you know. This could save one of the good bros on here from a trip to the slammer.

    one of the first things i look for is to see if the box is tightly sealed. i'd be a little weary if it looks as if its been ****ed with

    You'd think that most sources would appreciate feed back from their clients in regards to shipping and revieving. Customer appreciation is number one in my book as is their peace of mine.

    All good sources know how to pack. Hell, with good sources it wouldnt even matter if ALL the vials broke........they pack so good NONE of it would leak out.

    Also another thing to consider is that if there is excessive tape used on the box, it can be classified as "suspicious". Once that happens your pack will be opened and the postal inspectors will find your gear. Not Good.

    Next, they will decide wether or not to do a controlled drop, depending on the quantity of goods, which could end up with you in jail.

    However, the comments above were right; a good source should know how to correctly pack their products.

    I agree with you, but then there's some sources that aren't all that
    good that don't always take the time to pack things right and that's
    when someone ends up with problems... Some guys only care about
    getting the $$$ not what happens on the other end all the time...

    Exactly, and those are the sources you arent supposed to use.

    That's what I was trying to say. I've noticed that some sources care about their clients and somejust want the money and don't care about much else with their clients.

    You guys must be talking about no name, crap sources..........because established sources would NEVER let a pack like that slip by them.

    I'm not refering to anyone source in paticular. In fact I hope that any sources that are like what we have described here, read this thread will take it to heart and get their shit together for both their sake, but more importantly their clients. How long can you run a business or a hustle when it's ran poorly? That's the point I'm making, people need to be held accountable on both what they say and do.

    Like i already said.....if your source had half a brain he would know that letting out a single pack like that can get you busted and him busted. Busted clients become security risks because the source doesnt know if they are gonna sing to the authorities or not. With that said, any souce who would let a pack like the one mentioned above be sent out is a crap source.

    True, but some guys get so big they sometimes rely on using remailers
    and I've heard more then once of a problem coming from a less then on
    the ball remailer... I'm sure you've heard some of those stories yourself...

    Let's face it shit sometimes happens to even good sources... Not often,
    but they can and have happened, but this pack in question does sound
    like it was packed half assed and I agree no pack should ever go out like
    that...
