    Well, that's because he was importing them in mass and going to sell. And as far as I know, flashcarts are legal things that do illegal actions.

    That won't happen to a guy who just buys one flashcart from somewhere. [​IMG]

    Unless your selling 1000s of flashcards or illegal copy's of games, you have nothing to worry about. Even if you did sell them you would probably need to be selling 1000s and 1000s of illegal devices to get caught/for them to do anything about it.

    I'm pretty sure that most people, if not all sane people, will not get caught. One or two flashcarts through the mail will possibly never get noticed...but 26 thousand? I'm pretty sure no one around here would do something like that. I would rest easy, unless you want to do something like that. But honestly, why would you?

    I once had 2 flashcards delivered to my house, next thing I knew everything went blurry, my ears were ringing, my head hurt... that was just the flashbang, next thing I knew the SAS were interrogating me.

    I got off lightly, I only had to spend 6 months in prison, and only had to sleep with Bubba on alternate nights.

    Anyways as everbody is saying the problem is that he ordered in bulk and far too many, that many flashcarts are going to be noticed by any nations' customs.
