Senders of parcels warned not to post 7 prohibited items or face legal action

Members of the public using postal services are warned not to mail seven prohibited items or face legal action. They are also advised not to lend their ID cards to strangers for use in the mailing of their packages.

 

The renewed warning was issued by state-run Thailand Post Company after police recently found that drug traffickers are increasingly resorting to postal services to send narcotics to their customers, after several major drug shipments, being transported in vehicles, were intercepted by police.

 

Mrs. Samorn Therdthampiboon, managing director of state-run Thailand Post, said yesterday the company’s post offices have intensified the screening of parcels to prevent unscrupulous senders from mailing prohibited items.

I don’t know if this applies everywhere but I tried posting a computer motherboard to Australia for repair and Thai Post said no computers. I tried to explain what it was and even undid the package but they refused to accept it, has anyone else come across this.

The seven types of item prohibited from being sent by mail are:

  • Live animals
  • Narcotics
  • Pornographic material
  • Explosives or flammable substances
  • Unsheathed knives or other sharpened objects
  • Banknotes
  • Fake products which infringe intellectual property rights

 

You're welcome.

Start with the title of the thread "Senders of parcels........

Please do not hesitate to contact Thailand post should you require any further assistance

I recently ordered a can of Zippo lighter fluid from Lazada. It was shipped via Thai Post.  I can assure you it is very flammable and works just fine in my Zippo lighter.
