Default Gainsville Coins purchase question

Well was just confused at first but I bought 10 silver eagles from them and got my box but package said from Mike and Joes Plumbing Supply. Thought there was a mix up but realized its probably so no one opens it. My question is do most places that sell coins and stuff send like this to sway any theft I would guess.

I would say there is some sort of name masking. even blowout does it. I think theirs ususally say distribution center. Joe Blows Plumbing is kinda of funny though.

scottsdale silver says something else also.

I know earlier this year I ordered a new computer from tiger direct and they just sent it in the box with shipping labels on it. They really didn't even try to hide what it was. I laughed when I went to pick it up.

Yes, even if it is labeled with only the initials of the dealer, such as JMB for JM Bullion... most everybody who matters does it this way.

The funniest is how we receive Apple laptops. A label on the box always lists the computers serial number.

Remember Gateway cow boxes? I heard stories of UPS employees purposefully throwing these boxes.
