I really hope you are not going to accept any answers you find on an Internet forum when it comes to activities that can bring federal agents to your door and lead to your arrest or even death.

    For all you know you are receiving answers from federal agents on this Internet forum. I would strongly suggest that you do your own research on things like this to protect yourself. Use the shipper's websites or call them directly. Telling the judge and your defense attorney that you received your legal advice from an Internet forum, isn't going to get you acquitted.

    BATFE and DOT be hanged! It's the Postal Inspectors ya got to deal with. Those guys have a 95%+ conviction rate and do NOT make deals. I worked for the USPS for 30 years. Bullets started falling out of a box onto the conveyer belt one night, and the PIs were all over the place. Felt sorry for the poor dumb guy that shipped it.

    I take it you're not a GS-1811.

    95% conviction rate out of how many cases presented and "blue sheeted" (accepted for prosecution) by a U.S. Attorney's Office (USAO)?

    I've worked a number of cases with the USPIS and find them to be extremely competent, but in defense of ATF and USDOT/OIG, if all of USPIS presents ten cases a year to a USAO; 95% ain't that great......now don't misinterpret; I'm not picking on the USPIS; they are an excellent agency. This holds true to any federal law enforcement agency.

    Now, all three agencies deal with the USAO which prosecute the case....irrespective of the agency presenting it. If a PI or USPS/OIG agent present a case a Assistant U.S. Attorney doesn't like, then the case gets canned....again, irrespective whether the badge wearer is from ATF, USDOT/OIG, USPI, or the Bureau of Tooth Fairys.

    ...oh by the way, fraud or HAZMAT violation via common carrier would not be the investigative nexus of USPIS
