  • Don't check Tracking Numbers more than once.

Post Office, UPS, FedEx , DHL and every other shipping company use a algorithm. If they see a someone checking a tracking number one too many times the website automatic FLAGS the package thinking that someone mailed something illegal. Then they will probably intercept package and take a further look. If you are going to track your package use a VPN service. It hides your IP address so if they do intercept your package and find something illegal they will not have your IP address on file and not know who was tracking the package online. One less thing they can use against you. Just some information when ordering. Now if you not ordering anything illegal then you do not have nothing to worry about.

Shit check tracking 10 times on a pair of rock revival pants.
Have had them and some expensive glasses stolen from my porch before. But yes they can track up address of anyone that checked tracking. VPN is always good idea

If you are a dealer or moving large quantities this is a no brainer. If you are a dealer I would suggest getting a VPN at very least.

There was another case not to long ago where the pac was seized so the person upon controlled delivery denied the pac and wouldn't sign for it. That didn't matter because hsi arrested him for conspiracy to traffic narcotics. It was because they connected him to tracking the package and he tried to fight the case and was found guilty.
Stay safe

What did the pack contain? Aas or amphetamines?
