Mail Ordering & Security
    #3886581 - 03/08/05 11:35 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Really, how much risk is it to order spores online w/ credit card to my address? Is one put on some sort of Federal Watch List in the US?

One could eliminate the credit card aspect by sending money order. But how many of you actually use mail forwarding services in the name of complete anonymity?

(Yeah, I know what the faq's say, I just want some opinions. Thanks)

Fight Apathy.
Or Don't.

I really highly doubt it for the simple fact of the sheer volume of purchases going on constantly. If u order 1 syringe a grow kit and a book on how to grow and they saw that they couldn't do anything. eBay everyone says is a dangerous place to buy but i noticed someone sold a syringe full of GT mycelium. That would and should have been busted if they kept tabs on everything being bought and sold.

why take the risk?

I would not be surprised if the PO Boxes of spore vendors are monitored. Sure, nothing has happened yet (as far as we know), but there is no good reason to be lazy or carefree. Protect yourself - it is not difficult to do so.

Keep in mind what the DEA is supposedly doing with the purchase records and names/addresses from Operation Web Tryp - they are noting and pursuing those who purchased larger amounts of chemicals regularly. I would expect the same from spore purchases - eventually there will be some sort of crackdown.

I have worked in the shipping industry myself and honestly I cant see any small plain package raising suspicion. I have never worked for the postal service but im sure mail is sorted and shipped in a similar manner. Your job is to stand there and sort shit quickly. You dont have time to think about what is in a package, and most postal employees probably dont give a shit anyway. If someone was keeping an eye on spores, it would probably happen as they are sent out from the supplier, not at your local post office.

I spit reality, instead of what you usually learn
and I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice
cause I'm the only motherfucker that can change my life

Ya thats true, but sending inconspiculously is always something to consider. FEDEX and UPS do have the right to open a package when the sender brings them to the front desk so even syrniges may not raise eyebrows, you should be more careful with other things. Once you accept and sign for it, the pack is your responsibilty. Honestly though, DEA doesnt give a shit about a few pot plants in a closet or a few casings underneath your bed. I suggest reading LANA's sticky in this forum.
