Getting a letter or parcel from Point A to Point B is the goal. Nearly every country worldwide has a system to achieve this.Interchanging mail between each countries is called "international" mail. If the mail piece is delivered in the same country it was sent from, it is called "domestic" mail. Although countries vary in system design, similar things like mail sorting facilities and Customs inspection facilities are found in most. International mail goes through two customs inspection facilities, one from the country of origin, and the other in the country of it's destination. In the USA, all domestic First-Class mail is protected by law against unwarranted search and seizure. International mail is also more expensive, and has higher loss rates than domestic mail. Certain countries are known for having particularly strict Customs inspections on incoming mail, including Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Norway, Sweden,Finland, and many Middle Eastern and Asian countries.
My package is damaged.
Sometimes packages get a bit damaged while not being completely opened. Remember that those boxes get thrown around a lot. It is for example possible that it was tossed onto the ground, bent, manhandled by workers or torn by sorting machines.It is a federal offense to open someone else's mail. Nevertheless if someone could see the illicit content of your mail through the holes you should not order for a while. If the contraband could not be seen, because of a visual barrier and/or a decoy the vendor used, you will most likely be fine even if your mail was delivered damaged.
Should I use my real name if ordering to my home address?
Yes. From the beginning, this has been one of the most debated topics for buyers.Using your real name does not automatically make you more guilty. The point of using your real name is to blend it in with the other packages you receive. USPS keeps track of names delivered to addresses. A fake name sticks out like a sore thumb to your local postman, and the USPS computers. Using your real name increases the chance of a smooth delivery.
Can I order to a university or a dorm?
Yes, but make sure you haven't signed away any of your rights to your school giving them permission to search your mail. Remember that your university can search your dorm without your knowledge and without cause.
Can I order to my workplace?
No.Keep all Darknet activities separate from your work.
Should I check tracking?
Do not check tracking at all, unless a substantial or abnormal amount of time has passed without delivery. You will only leave traces when doing so but will not make it arrive faster.If you absolutely have to check it (which should never be the case), do not use Tor to do it. It will be a huge red flag and law enforcement already knows about darknet users checking their packages over Tor. Instead use a third party website if possible, so not the one of your mail carrier but a website which checks the tracking for you. Examples are TrackingEx and PackageMapping.Use a VPN and choose a server that is in the same country as you (to not raise any red flags)
What should I do if I receive a double order,additional items, or something I didn't order at all?
Contact the vendor. If you can reasonably make use of the product, you should offer to pay for it. If you can only really partially use or you will use it but didn't really want it,you might consider paying shipping + 50% of the item's price. If you just don't want it or can't use it at all, please at least let them know. Try to be good to good vendors.There's a better chance they'll be good to you.
The first rule is: stick to domestic whenever possible. Mail that does not cross any country border will get far less checked than all other mail. This reduces the risk of younot getting your package or even getting in legal trouble. However one disadvantage is that the prices can be a bit higher compared to other listings from vendors that ship not from your country. You have to decide for yourself if you want to take the higher risk and pay a bit less or if you want to play it safe and pay a bit more. If you buy for the first time or for one of the first times, it is best to stick to domestic even if you have to pay a bit more. Many new users worry too much during their first orders (e.g. get paranoid) or even make mistakes.In order to get yourself some peace of mind you should stick to domestic because it generally means a higher success chance.
'Hot' Origin Countries
If you order international, it is strongly discouraged to order from the following "hot countries" because mail coming from these countries will usually get checked extensively.
• The Netherlands (NL) - notorious origin country for all drugs
• Colombia (CO) - notorious cocaine and heroin origin country
• Peru (PE) - notorious cocaine origin country
• Bolivia (BO) - notorious cocaine origin country
• Venezuela (VE) - significant but marginal cocaine origin country with possibly rising market share
• Ecuador (EC) - significant but marginal cocaine origin country
• Canada (CA) is on Israel's drug origin country watch list, and, specifically, XpressPost (express mail) from Canada is often opened by US Customs indiscriminately. Note: Mail that is not XpressPost from Canada is usually not cause for extra concern.
• Spain (ES) is on Israel's drug origin country watch list. This affects imports into Israel.
• France (FR) is on Israel's drug origin country watch list. This affects imports into Israel.
Countries known for strict customs enforcement on inbound international mail
Certain countries are known for having particularly strict customs inspections on incoming mail. Ordering contraband via international mail to and from these countries is up to the buyer, but generally discouraged because of the elevated risk of detection. Notable countries:
- New Zealand (NZ)
- Israel (IL) - don't order drugs to Israel from Canada, Spain, France or the Netherlands
- Norway (NO)
- Finland (FI)
- Singapore (SG)
Stealth is important to get your ordered product to your front door. It is mainly a vendor topic (because they have to package the order) but you have to pay attention to it too, in order to avoid getting into legal trouble because you chose a vendor who is known for his bad stealth.The important difference between stealth and decoy is that stealth is used to make the pack appear as normal as possible and also conceal the smell of the drugs. The decoy is an item that is used to hide the drugs inside the pack in an attempt to mitigate the possibility that the drugs in your pack will be found. Therefore decoys are essential in international orders because these packages get inspected two times by customs (in the origin country and in the destination country). They are not that important for domestic order though because they do not cross borders.
