    customs flagged my address

    Afew months ago I had some packages from overseas seized.. Homeland security sent me a letter the whole bit ..So did they flag my addy..
    Well this may be conicidental but i recently made a purchase on Ebay the was being shipped from Florida.. We all know that there is a loto juice in FL..
    Anyhooooo..The shippent was sent to Ca and then to WA (Federal Way office) then back to CA for no apparent reason.. A litlle too coincidental..
    Maybe Im being paronoid and the USPS does this often ..wrong stack or stoned worker..?
    But now I am getting a PO BOX,, will this help ???...how good are they for protection from a controlled delivery?

    i don't work for usps, but the number is actually a small percentage of the volume, we process over 300,000 packages a day, so out of that 400 on average are misloaded, around .1%

    I wouldnt trust EBAY anyways. I seen the products being sold on there. In my opinion its a set up if not a scammer. Those prices are rediculous anyways.

    I agree, anything on Ebay is either a scam or sting.

    Are you all really that scared of ebay? Ebay saves me tons of money. Like replacement heads for my oral-b toothbrush, hair products, cell phone accessories, etc.... Never been scammed yet except one buyer not paying me. I think you all are being a little paranoid with the 90% figure. There feedback area will let you know if the person is a scam.

    jc, Ebay is fine for legal goods, but it is not for illegal goods. The police moniter this and I am telling you that if anyone is stupid enough to buy gear this way they are either going to get scammed or busted. I assure you, you will not get the real goods as these ads are monitered by police and the seller is easily tracked.

    My bad I didn't see the connection made of Ebay and illegal products and still don't. He said he just bought something from ebay that shipped from FL not that it was illegal he was just curious why it went all over the place before it got to his home.

    Buying illegal stuff ebay I think is a no brainer and 99% of people would know better.
