What is the worst that can happen if you are sending perfume and you claim that the contents in the package has nothing "flammable"?

I like using the Electronic machine bc it's FASTER and never a line... but the thing is that it asks u if there is anything flammable etc etc in ur package and if u say YES, it will decline processing any postage n tell u to go to the counter.


:Push:

ooppss... to answer your question, i guess if you say that there is nothing flammable and something goes wrong, maybe you can get in trouble....

I mean, hairspray is flammable?! I dunno.. I would just ask the people, say you are mailing perfume. I don't think they really mean perfume when they say that, but I am really tired and having a brain fart day- so maybe?!

wherever life takes me
flammable liquids (b/c of the alcohol content) like perfume is consider a dangerous goods by the FAA. Only a limited amount is allow for each person to carrry on a aircraft.

I guess shipping company doesn't want to take the responsibly of these dangerous good items that's why they will not ship it. If anything bad was to happen b/c of these dangerous goods they will be held responsible.

I declare it as perfume, and still ship it via air. So far, nothing has happened (knock on wood). My friends all get their perfume presents safe and sound. Or maybe I'm lucky? Wrap and buffer well and nothing will happen.
