    I've only had customs tamper with one of my 20 or so packages. It was a hardware only and from heaven-gifts, it showed up with the customs tape wrapped all around it. Let us know how it goes and good luck vaping!

    I have placed 2 orders from China (unflavoured juice and hardware), and several from the US (juice). Airmail from China takes a very long time to get through Customs. I have never had my packages tampered with by Customs. My last one from China was in Customs for 10 days but sometimes it takes longer.
    Good luck with your vaping supplies, they will reach you, but it will take time.

    I've always had good luck with supplies (both juice and hardware) coming from the US, not one package seized so far (knock on wood). The only package I ever ordered from China (GH1) got intercepted by a scumbag shipping company and my $400 worth of goods were replaced by a $0.25 pink octopus keychain lol. GH1 totally stepped up to the plate and re-shipped my order as soon as they found out what had happened, and that package made it from China to Montreal in 2 days :p

    It's always a gamble though, so don't put all your eggs in one basket, break up your orders across different suppliers in China/US/Canada is my advice.

    @ Devilfishphil a pink octopus keychain?? burn.... lol . at least the company you bought from hooked you up after finding out what happened. :)

    wow, this all sounds pretty awesome so far, 1/20 packages intercepted?
    i like those odds :)

    Im going to cuba in a month, so hopefully everything will arrive before then...
    it would suck to wait forever only to miss it by a day or two :p

    What U.S.A sites do you use? i can't seem to find any that have paypal...

    o ya, i didnt order one big package,
    but 5 seperate ones.

    so hopefully they will get through easier

    For flavourless, Any accept master-card and Visa without going through paypal? ..And package things Nicely? ;)
    Shouldn't we perhaps get a American family member take delivery first and then re-package our flavourless liquid? ..So the return address isn't on a watch list perhaps? What service would be best for a family member to say re-ship to Canada for my Birthday? :D PM's welcomed!

    The more you act like you're doing something wrong, the more the perception that what you're doing is wrong...

    zero issues on my end. Odd one takes a bit longer than I expected, but that's it. I do order hardware and liquid for different locations.

    Crazy Canuck, I don't consider that we're doing anything wrong. Just don't want to loose supplies due to a wrongfully directed customs broker seeing a return address that may have been flagged and thus, being forced back to analogs. It was only the other week, according to a few members, that HC allegedly sent out notices to refuse hardware as well and that there would be changes for the new year. If a package needs a return address to be sent I feel covering our bases would be a very good idea to keep continuity. I wouldn't ask a business to put or fake return addy on a package and I wouldn't ask a family member either. I'm not a business so any package sent from a family member is strictly personal, like a birthday.

    I have placed several orders out of country for juice, unflavored nic, and hardware. Nothing has been seized yet, but I had one of my unflavored nic packages with 500ml of it investigated. They opened the package and still sent it hahahaha. But so far nothing has been seized. I won't be ordering out of country anymore. I have been hearing way too many horrible stories lately and just refuse to chance it anymore.

    To be fair though, I've never had an issue with FedEx before this shipment. I order very often, so something is bound to eventually go wrong.

    For all I know, the reason it's being held is the invoice got ripped off by a conveyor belt or something.
