Thailand post warns against posting prohibited items online for shipping | Samui Times

Thailand Post has advised members of the public against posting prohibited items online after a pet animal had been shipped in a box to a customer in Pathum Thani.

A pet squirrel was ordered online last week by a customer and was discovered dead on arrival in a parcel sent to the customer. The online vendor had given assurances to the customer that the animal would arrive safely.

Thailand Post stated that restricted or prohibited items include living creatures, controlled drugs, pornographic material, flammable objects, and bank notes. The company has recently uncovered turtles, snakes, and other animals being shipped in mailed packages.

The postal service provider reiterated that posting these items violates Thailand’s Postal Act (1934) and any individuals found guilty committing these offenses will be persecuted.

Members of the public are also urged to check the credibility of online vendors before making a purchase, as a large number of customers have fallen victim to scams during the past years.
