I have had packages opened,and records stolen out of packages that have come into the country from overseas.These parceIs have been resealed with green fluorescent tape ,that says "INSPECTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY",and all or most of the records inside are gone.I have had high dollar Furtwangler,Martzy,Gene Vincent,and obscure 60s rock rarities stolen this way.It was real disturbing the first time it happened,and you have no idea who stole the stuff,or where.Yep it happens a lot more than it used to.Only terrorists buy rare vinyl I suppose .

I've not had the experience but am trying to track down a rumor.
