Well I got a package today that was covered with Lime green tape :c

"But it was a empty brown paper package that had the lime green tape :c
Examined by customs on it." It was empty inside except a typed note.

I received one last Christmas and just the other day my mail lady asked me about. I got some coffee in the mail and she said "that's odd, you usually get cigars".

She then asked why Customs stuck a letter in my package and sent it to me anyways. I told her it was a simple misunderstanding and that the product was replaced (not that Customs replaced it).:w

I still don't think she put 2+2 together yet.

No fine for a box Ryan. They barely raise an eyebrow over a box or 2. They could impose a fine if they wanted to but nothing usually happens. I know a guy that got 3 of his boxes opened recently and the smokes were slit down the length with a razzor then sent on for delivery.

Lose a 50 cab of Trinidads & a rare box of HU Club Epicures in one shipment & it hurts quite bad I assure you.
There is no guarantee there wont be a fine in the future for past seizures either.
