Hi everyone, would really like to get some of your valuable insight. Well, I hesitate to track a USPS letter since the first thing that is on their to do list of things it is to link your IP to the parcel that is being tracked, therefore I’m under the impression that they can easily find you by your IP when you track a parcel. And so, having this said I have 3 questions to ask and as I said, I would really appreciate some of your valuable insight.
First – do you think that this is that unreasonable to do?
Second – are there some alternative ways/ methods that you are aware of in order to make it more difficult to connect the points a to b?
Third and the last one – I have use tails with tors network/ browser while using a third party site a time or 2, however I just know that anything on that system is bound to raise some unwanted flags and it doesn’t really matter how meaningless the letter actually is… what do you think about this? I’m just searching for opinions from people who have experience regarding this. thanks.September 25, 2017 at 11:23 am #2477AmyGodnessParticipant
so look.. here’s what I know and I know this from years of reading tracking threads from different people all over the internet as well as personal experience that I had for years as well: like 90% of the time it is getting there so there is little to be worried about.September 25, 2017 at 11:57 am #2478
oh well, thank you really really much for pointing this out, I really appreciate it, however I have read the rare post where they say that the IP has been used from checking the tracking number on the USPS and therefore this is connecting the recipient to the subject letter.
In addition to that an side note here.. there is somebody who has recently posted on a shipping discussion on a forum about the DEA coming somewhere around their houses…. And also some thai (and not only) vendor getting busted his arse off… this just reminded me of that dr. in AZ that happened anywhere back in 2004 or so that inevitably got taken down by the different agencies because of the fact that he has been wildly off the chain. And I remember that what they actually wanted from her has been the computer that she has been using due to the fact that they could use it as evidence against the focus of the bust. The doctor and guys running the warehouse. This has been just it… not to take her down… but yeah, I do know that this, obviously, has nothing to do with tracking numbers. But as I said, it is as a side note here.
Also, what’s true here is that is a rarity, however as a risk factor that it still remains and would wonder if using the tor browser (network) is gonna be anyhow worth the associated issues given those all problems. Well… I just hate to expose myself at all if possible, and I guess each one of us do because we all know that ordering HGH online is against the laws. But I personally, and I guess as any other out there, truly enjoy to walk out the front door at my will…
Also here… I did mean to point out that I never to very rarely am checking a tracking number and I only do it if I am having a specific reason or mistrust of the vendor to do so. but then there are some rare but still occurrences where something is going wrong, overdue…. However, in case there’s something that legally has went wrong that is a real specific reason not to connect yourself in the clear to the thing. well, that very thing just came up with BS…. And if I have had not checked then I would most likely not have gotten my refund because of providing what happened to it. I did have used a method which has obfuscated me…September 25, 2017 at 12:31 pm #2479LockDownParticipant
Well…. I think that the simple solution is not to track it and that’s it if you are that worried… at least I wouldn’t track it if I have been worried about it. yeah, I do know that they can tell but do you think that they really care that much? They have millions parcels going daily from all over the world, they just can’t care. And so I can bet that they just don’t care. They just don’t know what it is inside of the package and I can also bet that they don’t even actually care what’s in there. what they do know is that it is coming to your address and they know it even without tracking IP. Don’t get me wrong as I do agree with you that we should be cautious and we should be taking precautions the way that you do, however my anxiety and concerns in regards to shipping and tracking have been greatly calmed down after I have read the advices from other people’s online who were talking about the probabilities and the consequences. Yes there is a risk as you said, we should realize this – but the risks are small.
Not sure how about others but for me personally, I know that I can live with that. I let them look at me looking and ordering and receiving and to be honest, in my opinion – I just don’t do anything wrong by doing this. I understand your fears, and I do know that LE might disagree, however what I think is that I have big doubts that they are going to do anything more than to just send a LL in case it is going to come down to that. as I have read on other threads – they have ‘bigger fishes’ to catch.
I do know that I might be breaking their laws, however I am just not breaking my laws so I am good with that. apathy of the law it is no excuse, however I am just trying not to worry about it, and I am trying not to track too much due to the fact that it doesn’t help anything to get here any way faster/ better/ safer or whatever. So you’re just left with cracked nerves and the exact same result. Therefore there is no need to worry/ panic etc. I would really like to order from a site which is carrying the non controlled drugs and also the controlled ones either. Depending on what I need as I often might need both. Maybe the package is going to contain birth control pills which would be illegal as we all know, however this one is being supposed to be overlooked. But not if I order the HGH.
However, I also order medications online that are not controlled for whatever else of my health issues and whenever I am ordering my regular drugs that are not being controlled, I am having no worries at all. nobody’s going to care about it. anything at all that it is even a little bit scheduled is going to be with a different story, however unless they are going to open up that package, they just don’t know what’s inside of it, so until then you’re 100% safe regardless whether you order HGH, controlled or non controlled substances.
I just don’t know about your protections. To be honest, I personally do think that it is a good thing to use them. in case you are being worried about being observed tracking a package… then why would you track it at all? they are going to know that somebody who has had an interest in the past was checking. Of course I can’t be sure, however at least I believe that this is true, and that’s even with the protections that I don’t know anything about it.
In case you do not want to be associated with the tracking at all. you could ask the vendor in order to check the tracking for you and to tell you everything you want to know. He would have an interest and this would obfuscate even more as much as I think. I personally am thinking that this is fine either way you choose. However I do understand the reason as to why you would want to leave as few clues as it is just possible. Having this said, I hope that this is going to be helpful for you, at least a little bit. All the best wishes.September 26, 2017 at 9:26 am #2481XylasheParticipant
Umm… well, in case you really do not want to use the tor browser or a VPN then why you would not go to a random coffee shop around you, turn on your phone’s wifi, put on the private mode on a browser and to track it from there? it seems to be the safest way which puts you with the minimal risk and gives the least clues. Yeah, the coffee shop it is most likely physically near of where you are living, however in apart from that, there most likely are not very much of other connections. Hopefully you’re going to like this idea and this is going to help you. if this doesn’t help I am not quite sure what else does. All the best to you!September 26, 2017 at 10:06 am #2482HaroldParticipant
I am not very sure how true this statement is, however, there were somebody that I used to know who has told me not to keep checking the tracking number with the tor browser and he has said that doing this it may raise some flags. He has told me that it is because different IPs that are checking the exact same tracking number is not going to look good and so they would realize that you have something there that you want to kept in secret. So obvious if you want something to be kept in secret then it is somebody of interest which means that it might be illegal. I am not very sure if they can see that you’re searching specifically with tor, however they can see that you’re checking the tracking number from different Ips and that’s a good sign that you’re using tor.
So your idea that it might be a good idea about NOT using TOR that’s a good thought. If you are checking it yourself then it would be a better idea if you’re going to use a normal browser since everybody who get a tracking number is checking their letters and everybody checks it from normal browser. And everybody including those who order non controlled substances and perfectly legal items. Having this said, this is not going to raise any flags at all, its your item in there, tracking services online are there for you in order to check if you want, this is why they are there for you at all, so of course you could do it, but you should do it without ‘passion’ or anything that is ‘out of ordinary’ so you would avoid getting any questions or raised flags.
If you’re interested in my personal opinion, I must tell you that I might only check a tracking number once then that’s it… already as it has been told, about 9 out of 10 times it is going to reach you regardless of what you do. But there’s that 1 out of 10 times where it won’t and then again, regardless whether you check it often or not even once, and regardless what browser you’re using. I wish you good luck and I hope you’re going to be alright!September 26, 2017 at 10:26 am #2483LoerronRParticipant
i do understand what you’re talking about as I have got a lot of the paranoia and got paranoid in general about the tracking numbers as well. I’ve been in the exact same situation as you’re currently in. but over time, and reading posts which really helped, I changed my mind and now I am never checking them, well, ok, unless there is some item that is coming really really late. Oth, I am checking my orders from ebay and from the amazon all the time continuously, just to see if it is worth a trip to the mailbox yet or not. however I have big doubts that checking or not checking raises any flags at all. can’t be sure, as everyone here, however I just think that they must get just so so many people out there who is constantly checking their stuff… I mean… how could they wade through all of that? how that is even possible?September 26, 2017 at 10:43 am #2485
Hey there Harold , that was my exact thought on the tor thing as well. I have used it 2 times then later I have opten for the whatever is happening is the answer. Every someone on this planet is looking at that traffic and we very hardly want to get lumped into something that is outside our scope inadvertently. Also wanted to say… LockDown, our philosophies are being meshed. Also when I am getting some of my meds they are coming in bright white shake like a crap table in vegas. And I am never thinking about it at all. and that’s even before our government concluded our doctors no longer had the KSA’s to prescribe what was then schedule 3 medications I have had to sign and that was just a burden if you ask me. I am thinking that I could be over thinking this some as well. plus to that, Xylashe, actually I do have a family member who is rarely hitting a hot spot if it is looking anywhere near like a no show. The tor is providing a free vpn, however we have already discussed about that and my traffic does not warrant a pay vpn. But the free ones are only a joke and nothing more, like for example they would flip on you before breakfast and because of this thing, the paid ones would too push comes shove. Or at very least this is my opinion.
And lastly, hi there LoerronR, there are no doubts that unless you are under a microscope checking the status of a usps parcel by ip it is fairly low on the what are we doing this am. To be honest, I personally still do not actually want to flip a switch and that’s unless I must do it. so well, all in I can suppose that the occasional hotspot, not your device or cell phone, that’s going to be most likely acceptable. Having said this like one that has hit the customs and I have got a customs advisory that has ended my activities on that. declined the reship and has taken the refund. And yeah, I am all for second chances, however it is obvious not when my freedom to walk out from my front door it is at play as that’s just too much for me. and yeah, I do realize that this sounds to be too harsh, however at least that’s the way that I am seeing all of it. as a 15 years old I have been a stupid little wild thing and experienced what that is meaning. Understand in texas back then child welfare has not been a true priority. During all of that time it was obviously Quaalude related. I personally digress to be honest. Hotspot on a dedicated device in case this is going to be a necessary and that’s it. sorry if this is bothering you as I do realize that this was a rant that some of you might not like.September 26, 2017 at 12:16 pm #2489HaroldParticipant
To be honest this sounds… sorry… a bit stupid… to get an LL due to the fact that somebody has kept on checking their tracking? This just doesn’t sound logical. As if you wouldn’t get it if you wouldn’t check the TN. I am member of a lot of sites like this, especially regarding IOPs, and I still have never read about anybody out there to get a LL due to the fact that they have checked a TN a little bit more than it was needed to. Sounds completely illogical.September 27, 2017 at 6:53 am #2490LoerronRParticipant
You know… I think that all of this is due to the fact that in the last 8-9 month or so there were numerous reports of DEA visits, they were related to the Thai vendors as much as I have seen. I saw this being explained on multiple sites either. This is the cause of all this hassle, I mean, this has obviously increased paranoia among lots of people. But nothing more than that. I am quite sure those were some kind of ‘planned’ visits. And yeah, exactly as it has been said earlier, I have not heard of a ll mentioning the tracking or anyone saying that they have got the ll because they checked the tracking too often. All it does (checking the tracking too often) is increasing paranoia, and that’s it. or at least that’s in my opinion.
