    Default Customs Letter

    This a terrifying problem. I got a letter from Customs in Chicago saying they seized a package with my address with $7000 worth of items. This happened last year in August and I am just now getting notified. They mentioned I had 4 choices as far as the property goes. Well I never asked someone to use my address and have no interest in it. Their letter states they have reason to believe I have interest in it.

    I have to respond by 22 August and I don't know what to do. They mentioned civil forfeiture and I am afraid they will take my home.

    If this does not belong here I will totally understand if the admins remove it. I am just looking for some guidance.

    It sounds like a scam. Are they asking you for money? Is that one of the four options?

    So over a year ago they seized something in the mail coming to your address? Man, talk about slow. Toss the letter. No matter if its a scam or real it doesn't need your follow up. Your home is safe, and you don't need to worry.

    This smells like a scam. Did you order ever $7000 worth of merchandise? If not, throw the letter away.

    Toss it. Even if it was legit - if they wanted you they would come for you, not send you the form letter we all get when they grab our junk.

    You’ve been here since 2011? You should be telling others not to worry by now.

    @parkdove... Yep, yep, yep, yep. Ignore this, toss the letter, or better still, burn it (carefully, don't want to start a summer forest fire!) while cursing out our wonderful gov't agencies, and all the scammers who try to imitate them. Followed by a long, relaxing bath and a libation of your choice. This is just a total waste of paper, of stupidity. LOL.

    Peace.

    Edit - what @MRNUTTY said, too... you've been here since 2011; maybe you should try to be a bit more of an active participant here, as things change frequently, and rapidly. If you want to have the ability to use a vendor in an emergency, you need to know what's been going on in the vendor world, in the very recent past. I don't mean this as a criticism, more as a strong suggestion...

    I get phone calls similar to this too. If you didn’t even order anything last August it MOST DEFINITELY is a scam. If it’s a scam you can actually turn it over to the local police altho if you DO place orders, then I wouldn’t be doing that...

    Do not contact them, they will not take any of ur property. They will take the package which is what they are talking about. Its a common letter we all get, modt of us just toss it and let the vendor know it was seized.

    Obviously you don’t have to answer but was the letter sent as registered mail?

    $7k worth of stuff? never never never do that. If nothing else the vendor may scam you and a big shipment draws much more attention than a small or medium one. Then again, if it was that big they would probably have done a controlled delivery so maybe a fat finger put in an extra zero?
