When I checked the Fedex list of banned items to Pakistan, silicon based sex toy (fleshlight) does not appear on ths list.

Furthermore, why would they send me a letter to come clear it from international mail office if it is banned and they won't give it to me anyway. Are they going to create legal problems for me or something?

Please let me know as now I am quite worried about this whole situation.
Do keep us updated :D If I were you, I would just let it go. Imagine the look on their faces if you go to pick up xD Maybe order a smaller version next time?

I am also thinking about just letting it go, and if someone shows up later, tell them I never received a notice from them.

The list i mentioned, the link for it was found in this very thread, and is specific to Pakistan. I also found a Fedex list specifically for Pakistan which is: https://crossborder.fedex.com/us/assets/prohibited-restricted/pakistan/index.shtml

Of course you are right that even if it isn't banned, the customs people can make their own rules and do whatever they want.

My question to you is that when I go to their office, and they give me trouble or threaten me in some way, what are my options? Can I just tell them to destroy or send back the item, and walk out?

What if they take some kind of legal proceedings against me? On the notice that they sent me (and I think this is just the general notice that everyone gets and is not specific to me), they say that any item left unclaimed for 20 days they can start legal proceedings under the customs act against the recipient.

Any advice or thoughts?
Don't be Afraid, They might school you on why did you ordered it, It's banned, its unethical blah blah. The Notice is generic and sent to every shipment held in customs, let me point here is that they have already opened the parcel and know whats inside. Thats why they have sent notice instead of shipment. They can't do anything except disposing off parcel. Give them a visit and face the situation. how old are you btw?

I turn 40 this year. I am not embarrassed that I ordered an adult toy. As far as I am aware, masturbation is not illegal in Pakistan, but what I am concerned about is legal ramifications that may arise, and therefore, wondering if I should just act like I never received any notice from the GPO/Customs and forget about the whole thing entirely.

The selling of sex toys is a violation of 292-C (sale of obscene material) of the Pakistani Penal Code and is punishable by a jail term of 3 months.

While that law is specifc to 'sale and distribution' of obscene material, who knows how the customs people will interpret that.

So, in your opinion I should just ignore the notice and write off the item? =)
If i were you i would have visited their office and talk about it, As said earlier the highest they can do is give 10 minutes lecture on how unethical it is or destroy the product. At least you will learn that you can or can't import such thing. By not going to custom office you gain nothing.

Hey there, customs dont bother with legal proceedings and shit. They will just say yes or no or a lecture bout why its against the law.


But, next time. Get them from underground sources in the city, plenty of places selling this stuff.
Check out various fb groups n such.

I've ordered a small headphone cable from aliexpress using Aliexpress Standard Shipping (Registered), but 17track shows that the destination is unknown, which should show up as Pakistan Post. This hasnt happened before and I cant track the product when it reaches Pakistan. Is this cause for concern?

If the seller is sending just the processor chip, then the chances of you getting charges get extremely low. If it has standard box packaging, then it could be anywhere around 3-4k.

My MCB Lite Card's payment got failed couple of times for no specific reason last week, i removed the card and added it again, its working fine now.
Oh ok thanks. Can you tell me one more thing? I cannot login on mcblite.com nor on their website. It says invalid OTP reference on their website and invalid account on the app. I did biometric verification yesterday.
