Yep and one of the wierdest is DHL- seems to be some lag time involved as on a few occasions I went to bed reading -'Left HongKong' and it was at my door 12 hrs later.

This makes me nervous, I spent a decent amount of money with o-like the other day and wasn't aware I might be looking at customs issues. :-(

Will that help, or will that alert someone at customs to watch for my package? Ha ha, the worst thing is 10 of the lasers are low powered reds for gifts. I also have 4 sets of goggles and only two modestly powered lasers.

Customs only checks packages coming into a country and
in certain instances they have BLACKBALLED list where
companies like WL will get flagged for scrutinized inspection
due to the fact that their Lasers are NOT FDA approved.

They do not do Custom's inspections on the address of the
buyer... but the companies trying to get their illegal product
across the border...

They also do random inspections as well but they only have the manpower to search 1-2% of all packages that come into the US. That 1-2% is mostly packages from companies that are on DWPE lists. Look at it this way, you're package literally has a 98-99% chance of getting through.

I just got an email from Susie telling me that my order wouldn't go out before the Chinese new year and it would be several weeks. She asked if I wanted to cancel the order and I told her that I WOULD like to cancel it. I'm going o shop around and maybe look at some of their stuff later.

Well you're going to have the same problem with just about every other chinese company so just keep that in mind.

Yeah,

I just placed a large wholesale magnet order (think buckyballs) and they were able to DHL it out before 農曆新年 with no problem so I was surprised O-like wasn't able to do that with my Jan 08 order.
