Thought a clearance delay was a seizure...

My packages that were being held for shipment in Hong Kong were all delivered to me last week. I placed another order yesterday, and my supplier assures me they problems with DHL have been resolved.

Slapped... I have never seen anything like that. I have seen a clearance delay, but never one that lasts more than one day. Its usually just a couple hours, then it starts moving again. I'd have to guess that a clearance delay of that timeframe means either the package has been seized, or it has been lost by DHL. I'd have to go with seized as an educated guess. I would be on the phone with DHL as soon as possible, if I was you. Good luck.

That is weird. Every time I have had a issue like that when I call into DHL they always assign a team member to perform a inquiry directly to the center and then they call with the information. I've found the customer service to be outstanding.

Every once in a While they do go Directly to N.Y. Gateway, It is a Little tougher a Customs Check in N.Y. that's for sure, more Packages do get seized

I just called "Physical inspect 3-5 days" so yeah that's GG..... Already contacting the supplier. Man that's 2 address in less than 9 months. I guess it's back to DHL to PO box and making them call me for a street address for awhile lol... if you didn't know that trick.It does work, if your supplier will send to your PO box, DHL will call you and ask you for a physical address when it's on the truck. My supplier said he has never seen NY gateway.


Now how to explain to a relative they might get a certified letter... heh And no i didn't use my name.

Why would you use a relatives name? You should never involve your family in anything like this as that puts them in jeopardy. What if the box that got seized had P90X in it. They would get a letter from Johnson and Pham threatining to sue them.

If you want packages to not come in your name just use a stealth name. Then the first time a package shows up and your not home the driver will normally leave you the paperwork to fill out for signature on file. Then after you fill it out you will never have to sign for anything ever again. That is what I do and never had any problems. Plus it's not like they actually check for id or anything when they deliver the package.

You still should NEVER use a Relatives Name. oh and by the Way they WILL Get a Letter from Customs, and If they answer it they could get into some serious Trouble.

You see Customs Knows that people use Stealth Names/Addresses have things set up with DHL Drivers,,,Yea thats right Agents Know about all of that,,And then some,,,

So when they send you the letter it says that "You MIGHT have an interest in the Package" if you respond as if you do have an interest you open yourself up to prosecution,,

So if I were you Id let them Know about this situation before the get the letter and respond incorrectly,,

Of course, and no it's not in their name either. Hell it's not even close to their last name. nonetheless they are already informed.
