US Customs Seizure???

This might be better aimed at guys in the states, I am wondering if a package of gear coming from overseas gets intercepted… what happens? I have heard that all you get is a letter?, As in they (Customs) dont come after you? Im talking a small package, just enough for use. I dont want to order and have a police officer waiting at my front door. Anyone comment on this?

Thanks

If you get a letter - your address is flagged. You will have most all international packages held up that are sent to the flagged address.
