Busted by US Customs & Border Protection -- TWICE!

I used to get my Cubans from a great guy in New Zealand, but somehow he fell off the face of the Earth. Then tried two other sites on the internet, and received fakes from both.

Then I tried one in Switzerland a couple years ago. Two orders, two weeks apart. Both got nabbed by US Customs. I received two 20-page legal documents from them with threats of prosecution.

So I'm nervous to try again.

I flew to South Africa to be the keynote speaker at a dental conference, and had zero trouble going through US customs.

Anybody know very much about this. Any cause to worry about trying to find another place?

Thanks.

Rod

I've heard of a lot of confiscations and also hear the Switzerland was the place to buy them. I'm not that crazy about testing the laws, so I just buy the legal cigars where I don't have to worry much about fakes. I have brought home Cuban cigars from Mexico- but only 2 or 3 sticks and had one in my pocket when going thru customs. They don't care about a few cigars and are looking for more before taking any actions.
