    Rookie Mistake

    Hi! I'm pretty sure that I made a rookie mistake. I ordered seeds and sent in cash by USPS. I used priority shipping, which entailed that I fill out a customs form. I did NOT use the name of the seed bank. I used a fake name for the bank and I used a fake name on the envelope and a fake address. But since it is going through customs, I'm wondering if customs automatically recognizes the seed bank address and will therefore confiscate my cash. I think I could have just sent the "greeting card" as First Class mail, which doesn't need to go through customs. Any thoughts on this, and any recommendations for sending cash in the future?
    Thanks!

    Doubtful they would stop it from reaching the Seed bank. However, and unfortunately, there's not a lot you can do now..having used all fake information you can't call to follow up or even try to initiate a trace.

    thanks, yyc420 :-) I guess the good news is that I did get my shipment from CKS and all the seeds germinated and are looking good. I'll just wait this one out and see what happens.
