        that much of a difficult thing, unless parcels get some sort of more careful inspection along the way, maybe x-rayed.

        Being caught in a violation of Terms of Service could result in loss of that online payment servce. That may or may not be a big deal for those using it. But, this sort of violation will very likely be reported to federal officials.

        So biggest deal is getting caught receiving gun related parcels by mail, etc. simce that needs to be obtaind through a direct dealer with a valid Federal Firearms License where a face to face check is made and that background check. By passing this step, in the purchase of new firearms, one is susceptible to being charged for felony, perhaps mail fraud, etc. and attorneys general will take pride in prosecuting such breaking of the laws and might even be eager to seek publicity for doing so.
