If products arrive and are discovered not be as described and/or improperly documented they are confiscated and destroyed and an advisory letter / postcard warning is is mailed to the individual that was to receive the shipment; one GSAS member received a visit from the USDA.
So my wood I ordered will be confiscated and destroyed? And how many days/weeks should I give it before calling it "confiscated".
