Default Shipping to Korea Issue/Opinions.

This is a weird thing that happened again this week; Third package and 3 different shipping dates

I salvage a lot of Audio Junk from finds here and there, Auctions, Estates, Garage sales Ect.
My Gal lists the stuff on ebay an allows overseas bidders. So far it has been great, No bum deals.

The Asian rim seems to love old American audio components, They often pay ridiculous sums for old Caps, Iron, Tubes and the likes.

Now, In light of recent happenings in So. Korea Many of my packages are being returned!
The Customs forms have been removed, The Custom forms were attached BY our local United States Post Office Using their forms, & The USPS Sticky Customs form attachment.

The package returned today costed $34.00 US to ship ( Heathkit W5M Output Trans)

Do you guys think this might be a customs thing due to the missile issue? or just a rogue postal worker taking matters into his/her own hands?

Sure as Sh!t the buyer is going to be upset. But once it is in the Post office system, It is beyond my control.

What Ya'll think?

Seems you should ask USPS who rejected and why.
Was the package opened?
Might be as simple as incorrect paper work for export of electronic goods or simply filled out incorrectly.
Problem might be due to Korean side, most probably they are a diode in regards to electronics trade.
like four million tons of hydrogen exploding on the sun
like the whisper of the termites building castles in the dust

I do not think so at all.

I had a 60% parcel loss for years until I started shipping airmail only to the pacific rim. No losses anymore!
