Can customs open my packages without me being present? Is that legal? They "randomly selected" all of my packages. I've been sitting here all day.
Sadly, that can happen. But I guess the baggage handlers themselves are a greater threat to your possessions than the customs agents.LeVeL;n3554748 said:My fear is just that they can steal stuff from my package
Well, sometimes they do plant things in luggage for training purposes. It gets messy when the sniffer dogs can't find it, the agent forgets to put the "This is a plant! Signed, Customs" label on the coke pouch and then fails to locate and remove it. I'd Google it but my VPN isn't working and the CPC is so vewy afwaid of people finding out things.LeVeL;n3554748 said:or plant drugs or something and I'd have no way of defending myself.
Concerning the Drugs: You send the packages to yourself? You are recipient and sender at the same time? Only in that case would that be a real risk to you. Having not send the packages, they'd be able to charge you - but would have to prove that you orderd this. Which would be hard - if you really hadn't ordered drugs somewhere.My fear is just that they can steal stuff from my package or plant drugs or something and I'd have no way of defending myself.
