Hi guys. I'm at a bit of a loss. I had an order come in a few weeks ago to NYC. It looks like it cleared customs, went to Jamaica, then went back to customs, where it's been stuck since September 19th. It's a simple order of non-controlled meds, so I'm not sure what happened, but I'm really bummed out. Does anyone have a similar experience? Thoughts and warm vibes would be appreciated.
I'm sorry to hear about the delay with your order. Customs processing can sometimes be unpredictable, and packages may get stuck for various reasons. Have you tried reaching out to the postal service or customs to inquire about the status of your package? Hopefully, it will get resolved soon. 📦Without
Thanks a bunch. I did indeed reach out last month, and they said it was stuck in customs but didn't know why. And yesterday, instead of getting an LL from customs, I got one from the...FDA? This is a first for me. Says pretty much the same thing, but I wonder why it got routed to the FDA instead.

In any case, vendor is happy to reship in smaller packages, so hopefully we'll have better luck this time. ???

whaaa? That's different!

I did a quick google and the FDA's website has a page about the International Mail Facilities and the FDA. Interesting. I don't know how they decide which ones go to the FDA vs. the DEA, unless it's obviously a controlled substance.

אז, המכתב הזה is really interesting to read. It's from the FDA to the USPS Inspector General in 2018 about a ton of packages from a specific IOP. Gives some insight into the FDA's interagency operation, and how back in 2018 the FDA was given a lot more money to assist in these sorts of operations, etc.

I had a split order come in recently. It came 1/2 around the world and was delivered in 8 days for both packages. I haven't had any troubles. I had a letter with the wrong zip code get delivered, though it took about 6 weeks. Hope everyone is having their letters coming in fast and untouched.
 
Knock on wood, (hope I don't jinx myself)but I have been using iops for over 8 years and thankfully I never received LL or lost a package. But there was one time that I thought I lost an order from an IOP that's no longer in business. I didn't get a LL and then about 6 months later it showed up. Everything I ordered was in the package and appeared untouched. I have my orders sent to a PO box for personal reasons. For all I know it might of fell behind one of the mailman's desks when he was sorting the mail (one of them he keeps right close to the wall) then one day he must of moved the desk and found it laying on the ground behind the desk or underneath it (the package did have a little bit of dust on it). But at least I got my package. Better late than never.

Boy you ARE lucky. I could've said that about five years ago, but since then it's a constant headache... Haven't actually had a seizure for a few years, but I take a lot of "steps" to help avoid it myself.

Glad to hear folks are still successful tho - that is for sure!
 
I just had an order just make it to my local post office just to be recalled by customs. Bummer. Hopefully nothing comes of it and the vendor does a free reship. Must be due to the new STOP act. I don't understand how they would know to recall it otherwise. I have seen a select few other occasions where this has happened as well.

DAMN! Have you had that happen before? I've seen this happen a couple of times lately too and I can't figure it out unless someone at your local po is possibly watching your address? Why else would it stand out? Also have you had any other LL's to your address recently that might make them watch it more closely. Someone on here had that happen and had a friend who works at USPS and was going to ask them about it. Sure wish we'd get some more info about this stuff.

If your vendor reships I would certainly use a different address if possible?

What an incredible waste of time and resources...:מְטוּרָף:
 
I have had a few LLs yah. It's possible my delivery person knows I get orders and flagged it but probably another package of theirs was flagged and the new STOP act system recalled the package back is my theory.

Curious if your vendor has a thread here? Or I'm just wondering how their success rate is in general. If what you suspect is true, then anything at all from that vendor would never make it thru again. Also, it's hard for me to imagine them finding one item at the border and then just sending out a "recall" to all packs. But maybe that is how this works. Seems so odd to get that far, and the other ones I've read about made it to the local po as well. You'd think they'd get pulled anywhere along the way randomly when they get scanned.

Sure is frustrating.
 
My most recent order has been stuck in ISC now for 4 days and even took a week in OPPS which for the past few months has been super slow.

Fingers crossed it is just this time of year.

hopefully it's just the holiday. I'm sure they have a lot of folks out on vacay. Boy it's stressful to go thru all of this tho... Fingers crossed for you!!
 
Question: if customs opens your pack and reseals it - do they ALWAYS use green tape? Or do they ever close it with clear tape?

I had an order with the vendor who only uses ems. It went through NY. Cleared in around 6 or 7 days, (I don't like checking too often, even on non-usps tracking sites).

They tried to deliver but couldn't find someone to sign. They didn't look very hard! So I got a "sorry we missed you" note in my mailbox. Went to the PO to get it, and I could see it had been opened.

Details: The ems envelope was cut on the side, and clear tape was used to close it. The whole order was now loose in the soft ems envelope, along with his stealth item where everything is normally in, taped, nothing loose. THAT goes in the ems envelope. But it was just a big mess. And you could SEE pills stuck to the clear tape that was used to reseal it. I had ordered a few different items in this order, and there were a couple missing of each item. This is the oddest experience I have had in my years of doing this. I also wonder if my problems stem either from my local hub or post office(s) that they go to before before delivered. (sometimes they take the scenic route, it is a bit unorganized here). I recently had an addy get what I call "burned" and NONE of my overseas packs were arriving.

So I changed addys and all has been good until now this odd taped order arrives at my new addy! (Well, I had to pick it up, but it was addressed to the new addy). Granted it was ems, not the usual mode that my regular vendors use. I have another otw, no tn, so I will see if it shows.

Another oddity: I ordered some sneakers from Amazon and I never bothered tracking it, but when it arrived I saw it had been opened and resealed with clear tape. Then I saw it was from a different country. And LAX on the shipper's label. But that one went to my "burnt" addy because I am still sending my Amazon orders there as I do order a lot from them, and there is no really safe place to put a bunch of large Amazon boxes at my place, and I worry about theft even though this is a very safe neighborhood. But mail theft is everywhere, even here.

So I am stumped. I thought it might be a po employee with sticky fingers, but the Amazon pack gets delivered via Amazon. So I go around and around, and maybe I am flagged in customs. And the no-shows that were going to my "burnt" addy were snagged in customs but they didn't bother to send a LL.

But that doesn't make sense since I changed my addy I have been getting packs from overseas with no problems until the ems one. I guess the one that is otw might shed some light on this.

And maybe the ems one and the Amazon one are unrelated which is why this is so confusing.

Wow, this took a long time to write, as there are so many factors, feel free to ask any questions. And hear any thoughts!

All I can say is that I'm totally clueless what's going on here! The pack that recently came with the pills loose and easily seen, and "some" were missing, but not everything? That truly is a mind-blower. If someone was stealing them, why not take everything, I would think. Why they would send the rest along is extremely puzzling unless it was an "unauthorized" opening (not customs.)

Is there any chance the items resealed with clear tape just got ripped open accidentally so that someone does tape it back together, but it's not customs and the only concern is that the item makes it without coming apart?

It's certainly easy to feel targeted and there is something called a "mail cover," where someone in LE requests that everything going to a certain address is recorded (not opened tho). Mail cover - Wikipedia

I do wonder if that first place that everything got snagged at, was under this mail cover or that address was flagged at customs?

Looking forward to hearing others' thoughts about this. It's sort of crazy...
 
My recent order is still stuck at the J land after ISC. I know according to reddit this is an issue for a bunch of people but now that it has been two weeks I am growing more concerned that I wont receive. (this is a reship to a different address as well).
 
My most recent package shows movement to my backup address. Hopefully I can be there to get it tomorrow or the next. It will be about two and a half weeks if I get it by Saturday.
 
There are already plenty of long lines at the post offices. And I would think folks who send holiday packages to peeps in the states probably send them way early, so hopefully it's just the time of year.

Up until just lately, I and from what I read here, everything was flying thru. Had one from across the pond in 6 days - just regular mail.

Keep us updated and sure hope santa shows up...

I was hoping that was the case and that once it popped up it would have several scans behind it. Seems like that happens so often lately.

And really, 2.5 weeks for international used to be the norm, if there was any busyness at all to the season. I always expect at least 2 weeks and if it shows sooner it's a bonus.

Yeah getting it into your actual hands is paramount...:)
 
This year has been smooth sailing. I’ve been getting packages quickly and no seizures. Right up until earlier this month, when I had an order that was “processed by ISC NY” and then didn’t move. I got the LL pretty quickly. I placed another order and it was just “processed by ISC NY” last night, so fingers crossed.
 
ההזמנה האחרונה שלי הגיעה למשרדי המקומי אתמול אך לא נמסרה היום. אני אתן לזה עוד יום אחד ואז אכנס לסניף הדואר כאן כדי לברר.

אני לא יכול להרשות לעצמי לקבל את המשלוח מחדש הזה לשולח. כבר עבר חודש של המתנה.
